Ecosystems are currently altered by human-induced changes in large herbivores and invasive species abundances. This study investigates how green sea turtles, as large grazers, and invasive seagrass interactively affect seagrass ecosystem services. A tool to use green turtle foraging patterns for global monitoring of (invasive) seagrass biomass will be developed.
