A temporal comparison of a benthic infaunal community southwest of St. Lawrence Island, Bering Sea between 2006 and 1970–1974

Abstract

Benthic infaunal biomass and abundance may be changing in Bering Sea communities. This study compared benthic infaunal biomass, abundance, and community composition southwest of St. Lawrence Island in an important forage area for benthic-feeding birds and mammals between 1970–1974 and 2006. Invertebrate biomass and abundance were significantly greater in… (More)
