Abstract
    We report the absence of a persistent seed bank in Thalassia hemprichii in NW Philippine seagrass beds. The survival of buried seeds was assessed experimentally since such a capacity is a prerequisite for the formation of seed bank. We found a rapid germination of non-dormant seeds and development into seedlings. Such seedlings could not survive under buried conditions (5 and 10 cm) for longer than a week.
