Abstract : An intensive review was made of the historical and present work on transplanting seagrasses, including eelgrass, turtle grass, shoalgrass, manatee grass, and ditch grass. The best seasons, recommended methods of transplanting, and propagules to use for each species are listed for the coasts of the United States. Some of the more important environmental parameters which directly influence successful transplanting are reviewed. (Author)
