Results regarding seagrass species abundance, distribution, and zonation over time are presented for the 1997-2005 period in Hillsborough Bay (HB, Figures 17-27) and the 1998-2005 period for Old Tampa Bay (OTB, Figures 3-14), Middle Tampa Bay (MTB, Figures 29-41), Lower Tampa Bay, including Terra Ceia Bay (LTB, Figures 43-57), and Boca Ciega Bay (BCB, Figures 59-69).
