Common macrofaunal dominant species in the sediments of some north Norwegian and Svalbard glacial fjords

  title={Common macrofaunal dominant species in the sediments of some north Norwegian and Svalbard glacial fjords},
  author={B\orge Holte and Bj\orn Gulliksen},
  journal={Polar Biology},
Based on own data from the north Norwegian Holandsfjord and two Svalbard fjords (the Van Mijenfjord and the Raudfjord), and literature data from three other fjord regions at Svalbard, soft-bottom communities are analysed and discussed in order to identify common and numerically dominant species in glacier-derived fine-particulated inorganic impacted sediments. The most abundant common taxa in the inner and presumed most glacier-impacted parts of the Holandsfjord, the Van Mijenfjord and the… CONTINUE READING
