Most people think of seagrass as little more than a habitat for marine wildlife. But there's more to this ubiquitous plant than meets the eye.

In this edition of Edith, we discover how seagrass acts as a guardian of historic treasures, a protector of environmental records and a captor of carbon. We also ask four ECU experts for their views on voluntary assisted dying and look at how small businesses are fighting cyber criminals.

I hope you enjoy these stories and more in our October 2019 edition.
