Abstract: Eelgrass, Zostera marina, is the dominant seagrass species in the northern hemisphere, and forms large meadows that provide several important ecosystem services. In the 1930s about 90% of the Z. marina populations in the Atlantic Ocean were killed in an epidemic caused by the wasting disease pathogen Labyrinthula zosterae. Despite the devastating impact of this disease the host-pathogen interaction is still poorly understood, and there is limited knowledge about factors that influence the diseas... more
