Educational seagrass activity book by Jamila Roth
Jamila Roth is a 2018 TESI grant recipient and a Ph.D. student in the school of natural resources and the environment in the UF College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
Roth used TESI funding and her research on the effects of warming temperatures and nutrients additions on seagrass communities to create an educational activity book.
Her goal with the book is to educate Florida K-12 students and lifelong learners about seagrass communities, the ecosystem services they provide and the effects of human activity on these ecosystems by creating and sharing lesson plans. She also created an interactive exhibit and worked with student science clubs.
