The coastal area of Torre Guaceto is characterised by peculiar prairies of marine phanerogams. This vegetation is dominated by Posidonia oceanica and plays a primary role in stabilizing the seabed.

Other chemoautotrophic bacteria that live in the bottom sediments obtain their reducing power from the reduced inorganic molecules present in the sediment as a result of bacterial decomposition of organic material, and as such their production is not strictly "new." Phanerogams, algae, and some photosynthetic sulfur bacteria are the typical benthic primary producers.
Species lists (phanerogams only) from the Aishihik-Sekulmun grasslands were compared with lists from grasslands in other parts of southwest Yukon (Douglas, 1974; Hoefs et al., 1975; Lausi and Nimis, 1991; Laxton et al., 1996).

Considering only the Pantanal plain, 1,863 species of phanerogams were listed, legumes being the most numerous (240 spp.), followed by more than 200 grasses (Pott and Pott, 1999).
Most of the methods used to study growth and production in marine phanerogams are expensive, time consuming, and require destructive techniques such as leaf marking (Sand-Jensen 1975, Jacobs 1979).
