Posidonia oceanica (Linnaeus) Delile, 1813
Posidonia from the Greek Ποσειδῶν (Poseidon, God of the oceans), oceanica from the Greek ωκεανός (ocean)
Posidonia oceanica is an endemic marine angiosperm of the Mediterranean Sea that constitutes an ecosystem of great importance since it absorbs large amounts of CO₂ by expelling O₂ and provides an extensive biodiversity reserve, among others. But it is being severely damaged by the current anthropic threats, often caused by the lack of information, which have led it to be in Regime of Special Protection as a priority habitat for conservation. That is why this project has been developed in the form of an informative website aimed at all those interested in knowing a little more about our sea and how to contribute with our grain of sand!
