[Extract] Seagrasses are marine plants with the same basic structure as terrestrial plants, including flowers for reproduction and leaves for photosynthesis. They are found in shallow waters, often near estuaries with sandy or muddy bottoms. As an ecosystem they are home to a variety of animals, ranging from plankton to dugongs and green turtles, the latter two forming the focus of a specialized marine wildlife tourism industry.
