Short summary
This work aimed to see if easy-to-measure characteristics of seagrass plants can be used to identify differences in sediment organic carbon (OC) storage. We found clear differences in three characteristics thought to influence sediment OC; however, these differences did not translate into different amounts of sediment OC, and sediment OC was very low. This highlights the complexity of OC cycling in seagrasses and cautions against the use of plant characteristics as a proxy for OC storage.
