We briefly review and expand upon classic conceptual models describing the succession of benthic communities along a gradient of organic matter (OM) enrichment developed for freshwater (the Saprobity System), coastal marine (the Pearson–Rosenberg [P–R] model) and lagoon (the Guélorget–Perthuisot [G–P] model) ecosystems. Differences and similarities between(More)
