Antimicrobial compounds isolated from endophytic fungi.
Photosynthetic productivity and biomass of six dominant species of seagrasses of the Gulf Mannar were recorded and correlated with the physio – chemical features of the habitat. Cymodocea serrulata recorded higher gross photosynthetic productivity (14.97 gC m-2 d-1) followed by Enhalus acoroides (10.77 gC m-2 d-1) , Thalassia hemprichii (10.77 gC m-2 d-1), Syringodium isoetifolium (5.89 gC m-2 d-1), Halodule uninervis (2.99 gC m-2 d-1) and Halophila ovalis (2.54 gC m-2 d-1), while E. acoroides contributed moretowards the biomass (5000 g fr. Wt.m2) followed by T. hemprichii, Cymodocea spp., S. isoetifolium, Holodule spp. and Halophila app. Above and below ground biomass of the seagrass species varied depending up on the texture of the plant. E. acoroides, T. hemprichii and Cymodocea spp. contributed more towards the biomass and productivity in the Gulf and are mainly influenced by the air temperature, light intensity, salinity and turbidity.
