The Fourqurean Laboratory for Seagrass Ecosystems Research is a research group directed by Dr. James Fourqurean in the Institute of Environment at Florida International University, is engaged in basic and applied research into the structure and function of seagrass beds and the food webs that they support.

At SERL, our goal is to conduct research and monitoring that will inform other scientists, stakeholders, and the public about seagrass ecosystems and the ecological services that they provide. As a part of FIU's Institute of Environment, SERL scientists conduct work within both the Freshwater Resources Division and the Coastlines and Oceans Division in the Institute. Our staff and graduate students also incorporate a strong teaching, training, and outreach component into our work.
