As comunidades da macrofauna
invertebrada desempenham papel-chave nos processos de ciclagem de nutrientes e na estrutura do solo (Blanchart et al.
Long-term effects of an oil spill on Fucus macrofauna
in a small Baltic bay.
The images deal with macrofauna
, particularly with photogenic macrofauna
In addition, John Lambshead (Museum of Natural History, UK) suggests that the number of deep-sea species of smaller multi-celled animals (the meiofauna) is even greater than the numbers of macrofauna
This notice of a call for applications is to achieve campaigns of sampling benthic macrofauna
of 5 years, in the years 2015 to 2019 inclusive.
Thus, the formation of biogenic aggregates increases since it is directly related to soil macrofauna
(Cecillon et al.
It is necessary to note that there are diverse macrofauna
associated with mentioned microfauna: bryozoan, corals, echinoids and bivalve (Plates 1,2 and 3).
It is clear that the distribution of benthic macrofauna
in an estuary is not static but changes according to the physico-chemical conditions that prevail at any given time.
Fine (1970) noted that faunal composition in Sargassum collected from the Gulf Stream and Sargasso Sea was similar, but that non-colonial macrofauna
were more abundant in spring than in fall.
The Gulf of California Invertebrate Database: The Invertebrate Portion of the Macrofauna
Studies have demonstrated that modifications in the soil's productive functions directly affect the soil macrofauna
and that these organisms respond to many anthropic interventions made to the environment (LAVELLE; SPAIN, 2001).
