Kavitha D, Kalaivani P, Vanitha V.

Abstract
Seagrasses are the residents of the coastal waters, globally which are rated as one of the most valuable ecosystems. During photosynthesis, they release oxygen to the water column and also pumps oxygen into the sediments through their roots to create an anoxic environment around roots to support extensive nutrient uptake. They are represented as one of the highly productive coastal ecosystem as well as of protects the shorelines against the erosion in the middle, lower intertidal and subtidal zones of the world. In folk medicine, seagrasses have been used for a variety of remedial purposes. But there is no review concerning various uses of seagrasses. In the presented study, an attempt had been made on various species of seagrass and find out the different phytochemicals and pharmacological uses.

Key words: Seagrasses; Phytochemicals; Pharmacological uses; Anti cancer activity
