Rocks in deep water, however, with little or no light, are dominated by suspensivores that incorporate organic material suspended in the water into the benthos
For example, the size distribution of benthos
may reflect the availability and organization of habitat structures (Mittelbach 1981a, Lodge et al.
Specified turnover rates ([PT.sub.i]) and equilibrium densities of zooplankton, benthos
, and forage fish are set to values typical for Oneida Lake.
On living in cold water: K-strategies in Antarctic benthos
The relative characteristics of the benthos
in the two study areas is assumed to be indicative of the environmental conditions present.
3) Unanswered questions concerning organic energy or contaminant flux, between benthos
and fisheries and protected species, must be addressed.
1998), zoologists and biologists from Museum of Victoria (now Museums Victoria) and Deakin University were allocated 48 hours for sampling the benthos
of Prydz Bay (Bardsley 1997; Quilty 1997).
Tropical tidal flat benthos
compared between Australia and Central America.
locality, depth, distance from the shore, river proximity and local oceanographic features appeared important for determining benthos
ICES Symposium on Marine Benthos
Dynamics: Environmental and Fisheries Impacts, Crete, Greece, October 5-7, 1998.
We assessed benthos
availability, sculpin diets and prey selectivity in streams with native and introduced populations of slimy sculpin, as well as benthos
availability in streams where sculpin may be reintroduced in the future.
