Abstract

Marine organisms are natural sources that provide a wide variety of pharmaceutical applications for curing human diseases. The bioactive components from marine organisms such as algae, plants, animals and microbes show various biological properties. Out of which seagrasses, a marine flowering plants that are widely distributed in tropical and subtropical regions and plays an important role in the support for marine coastal species and human livelihoods. The secondary metabolites of seagrasses exhibits wide variety bioactivity such as antitumor, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant and antimacrofouling. This review outlines the taxonomical classifications of seagrasses and the main objective is discuss the biological insights of seagrass family Cymodoceaceae and a total of 5 genera and 18 species have been acknowledged. This paper highlights the morphological characterization, phytoconstituents of the Cymodoceaceae species and its applica

The geographical distribution of seagrass (9).
