Seagrass beds are home to a wealth of marine life, from the strange to the commercially important. Just off of our Florida coasts, this ecosystem also stores carbon from the atmosphere and filters the water. Seagrass beds remain submerged most of the time. Infrequent low tides off of Alligator Point allow Dr. David Kimbro to study a diverse population of predatory snails and explore issues related to predator diversity and keystone species.
