Try to determine if tunicates differ in DNA depending on what they grow on.  Try 
to determine is tunicates affect eelgrass growth and shoot density.
Information to be Derived
Samples and chemical analysis;
Tunicate samples taken for DNA analysis and shoot density and growth.
12 samples preserved: 6 from eelgrass and 6 from hard man-made substrate. Photos 
taken with drop camera system. 26 samples retrieved for eelgrass shoot density 
and growth from 2 sites.
