Intra-Plant Biogeography of Zostera marina

Introduction

Field Collection and Storage

Six plants were collected from Zostera marina meadows in Bodega Bay, CA. We collected the first plant in late November of 2013. The other five plants were collected in early February of 2015 as a follow-up study of the first. We stored all plants at -80\(^{\circ}\)C prior to DNA extraction.
