Tidal submerged vegetation at lower two stations comprised Ruppia
maritime and Vallisnerja americana while at the upper three stations Junkus rumariana and Spartina aleterniflora were dominant.
Conversely, while no significant relationships between macroalgae percent cover and Ruppia
maritima aboveground and belowground biomass were observed during June-July 2004-2010 or August-September 2004-2010; these variables were positively correlated during October-November 2004-2010 (r = 0.
Shoalgrass is the dominant species but turtlegrass, manatee grass, Cymodocea filiforme, and small amounts of clover grass, Halophila engelmannu, and widgeon grass, Ruppia

To the casual observer there is little morphological difference between the two seagrass species that co-occur with eelgrass in the western Atlantic, shoal grass, Halodule wrightii Aschers, and widgeon grass, Ruppia
