Recolonization and succession in soft-sediment infaunal communities: the spatial scale of controlling factors
Succession in marine soft-sediment habitats has been studied extensively and several general models of successional dynamics have been developed. However, few researchers have addressed howExpand
Effects of Resident Species on Recruitment into a Community: Larval Settlement Versus Post-Settlement Mortality in the Oyster Crassostrea virginica
Laboratory and field experiments revealed that a variety of species of common, sessile invertebrates, including barnacles, ascidians, and bryozoans, affected the settlement and post-settlementExpand
Recolonization and succession in soft-sediment infaunal communities: the spatial scale of controlling factors
Succession in marine soft-sediment habitats has been studied extensively and several general models of successional dynamics have been developed. However, few researchers have addressed howExpand
Population Ecology of Polydora ligni (Polychaeta: Spionidae). I. Seasonal Variation in Population Characteristics and Reproductive Activity
A population of the polychaete Polydora ligni Webster was studied durlng 1982 and 1983 in Alewife Cove, Connecticut, USA, to determine seasonal changes in population characteristics. During earlyExpand
Responses of infaunal populations to benthoscape structure and the potential importance of transition zones
Relationships between population abundance and seafloor landscape, or benthoscape, structure were examined for 16 infaunal taxa in eastern Long Island Sound. Based on analyses of a side-scan sonarExpand
The effects of sublethal predation on reproduction in the spionid polychaete Polydora ligni Webster
Abstract Negative effects on reproduction due to sublethal predation were found in the tubiculous, spionid polychaete Polydora ligni Webster. In two laboratory experiments, sublethal predation wasExpand
Challenges in marine, soft-sediment benthoscape ecology
In this paper I address three sets of challenges that face ecologists who are studying soft-sediment benthic landscapes (or benthoscapes). These include (a) development of technology and analyticalExpand
Responses of Estuarine Infauna to Disturbance. I. Spatial and Temporal Variation of Initial Recolonization
Responses to disturbance of estuarine infauna were studied to test the hypothesis that seasonality, the estuarine environmental gradient and sediment composition would significantly affectExpand
Responses of Estuarine Infauna to Disturbance. II. Spatial and Temporal Variation of Succession
Infaunal successional patterns in Alewife Cove, a small estuary in southeastern Connecticut, USA, varied significantly seasonally and along the estuarine environmental gradient. Each study siteExpand
Biotic Interactions Among Estuarine Infaunal Opportunistic Species
Experiences de defaunation du sediment meuble dans un petit estuaire de Nouvelle Angleterre pour etudier l'effet des especes opportunistes etablies sur la recolonisation subsequente de ce sediment.Expand
