Zostera marina(アマモが芽生えの季節)

On Friday afternoon, I checked the current status of Zostera marina at my study site, Kagoshima Bay. There were lots of germinated plants.

新しい実験をそろそろ始めるために、アマモの発芽状況を調査してきました。まだ数センチですが、あと1ヶ月もすれば実験が始められそうです。水温は20℃でした。


Zostera marina is widely distributed in the Pacific, and generally regarded as the perennial plant. However, the ecotype of Kagoshima Bay, southernmost distributional limit in the western Pacific, is known to have an annual life history.
