Abstract: Standing stock of H. ovalis varies from 3.6-48 g.m-2 (dry) with the salinity range of 12.46-27.05 x 10-3 and the flowering occurs during January. The inorganic nutrients of the overlying water in the seagrass bed show wide fluctuation. Correlation between density of plant growth and inorganic nutrients of overlying water and chemical and textural properties of the sediment is noted in the seagrass ecosystem.
