Our studies of the Bay's sediment history indicate that 1) seagrasses are now at a peak in their influence in Florida Bay's history, 2) they are episodically eliminated from much of Florida Bay, and 3) seagrasses have had only a minor to moderate influence on the growth and evolution of Florida Bay's mudbanks. -from Authors
