@srall — are you familiar with these? Are they galls? They are on Common Lambsquarters, Chenopodium album.

I can't tell if they are galls, or scale insects maybe, although I don't think so.

Description

On the bank of the Hudson River.

Eelgrass is a flowering, aquatic plant that can reproduce both sexually via pollen or asexually/clonally via rhizomes. Underwater meadows of Eelgrass provide important habitat for many aquatic organisms. Many species of fish, crustaceans, mollusks, sea turtles etc., use Eelgrass meadows as either spawning, nursery or foraging grounds. It also provides an important refuge for many species.

A long list of organisms dependent on Eelgrass was detailed in the NYS Taskforce report:

https://dos.ny.gov/system/files/documents/2020/04/nys-seagrass-task-force-report.pdf

Eelgrass also serves the important function of increasing the oxygen levels in the water column. Eelgrass is dependent on ample light in order to photosynthesize and produce oxygen. Thus, water quality is one of the biggest threats to the survival of Eelgrass. Not only does Eelgrass increase the amount of oxygen in the water, it also reduces excess nutrients, e.g., nitrogen and phosphorus, which if not kept in check, can lead to things like algal blooms. Eelgrass also provides an important food source for many animals, including seafowl, such as the Atlantic brant.
