Near-Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy is a Rapid, Cost-Effective Predictor of Seagrass Nutrients

Lawler, I; Aragones, Lemnuel; Berding, Nils; Marsh, Helene; Foley, William


Near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy was used to analyze nutrient composition of tropical and subtropical seagrasses in Queensland, Australia, as part of a broader study of impacts of grazing by dugongs on seagrass. Seagrass samples of 10 species were collected, transported to the laboratory, and separated into leaf and root/rhizome fractions. They were dried, ground, and near-infrared spectra (400-2500 nm) were collected. We used partial least-squares regression to develop calibration...[Show more]
