The main aim of the dataset is preparing the available data by diversity and distribution of the Black Sea seagrasses, which were collected the scientists from IBSS around Ukranian and Russian coastal zone during last 50 years (1960 - 2009). The data about region, location, sampling equipment are given for each seagrass species. The species diversity is described from 45 transects, 164 stations at 0,3 - 20 m depth. These data are available now for scientists, professionals and they can be used in various purposes. more

The dataset of the Black sea seagrasses contains the information about 6 species (Zostera marina L., Z. noltii Hornem, Ruppia cirrhosa (Petagna) Grande, R. maritima L., Potamogeton pectinatus L. (= Stuckenia pectinata), Zannichellia palustris L. ( = Zannichellia major) .
