This chapter discusses the composition of seagrass communities. Seagrass communities comprise epiphytes and sessile epifauna growing on seagrass leaves and rhizomes, as well as more mobile animals, many of which move between seagrass and other habitats at different times or life-cycle stages. These include herbivores (ranging from tiny feeders on microscopic epiphytic algae to massive turtles and seacows), detritus feeders, and predators.
