Loss of posidonia reduces CO2 storage areas and could contribute to gas emissions

The loss of underwater posidonia meadows poses two problems: these areas can no longer capture and store atmospheric CO2, and they can become a source of this gas by eroding and freeing the carbon stored in the meadow. This is one of the main conclusions reached by an international research team, which assessed whether the revegetation of underwater meadows is effective in restoring their capacity to act as carbon sinks in relation to the time needed to achieve this (decades). —> Read More Here
