Abstract

Eelgrass and the kelp forest are popular among the coast of California, and hold impact much on human's life in the fields such as ecosystem, health care and so on. Especially kelp, as mentioned by Jennifer and Rebecca in “The Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine”, a variety of body systems can be nourished by the plant such as nervous and endocrine systems. For further utilization and understanding of these sea plants, learning their character is essential. Cabrillo Beach is a fantastic place to learn about both kinds of these flotsam plants and at this location we will be solving the following question. How does the biotic flotsam compare in the outer exposed beach (kelp) vs. the inner sandy beach (eelgrass) in an aspect of spatial distribution mapping and environment temperature?
