Method
Prop scar restoration method experiment: 10 prop scars treated with sediment tubes, 4 untreated prop scars and unscarred control plots were assessed for percent cover (modified Braun-Blanquet) and shoot counts to evaluate the treatment's impact on prop scar recovery. Three replicate paired 1m x 1m quadrats (one over the scar, another control over unscarred seagrass) were assessed for each scar in 2008 and again in 2010. These data were supplemented with analysis of seagrass scarring in broader areas using annual aerial photographs, in order to assess the effectiveness of non-regulatory boater information signage on prop scar frequency.
