Topic of the Study: Mechanisms driving seagrass species coexistence in a mixed meadow in Andaman and Nicobar Islands

Guide:Dr. Elrika DSouza

Highlights of the study

The physical environment is the canvas on which other processes unfold and it can be a major determinant on how important these factors are in determining species co occurrence patterns. Intertidal systems give us a glimpse of how important these environmental filters can be, where sub-metre changes in the physical environment can create a complex patchwork of conditions that each species has to navigate through, according to their own individual tolerances. This study still requires an additional effort to be even more generalizable at spatial and temporal scales.
