  • Abstract Twenty-five benthic invertebrate species were identified from samples taken monthly over 17 months at four sites on the Berg River estuary, South Africa. Gastropods and polychaetes dominated the macrofauna in terms of both numbers and biomass. Abundance of the dominant species fluctuated in response to seasonal growth of eelgrass Zostera capensis and filamentous alga Cladophora sp. Differences in distributions of invertebrates on the estuary were attributed to differences in physical… CONTINUE READING
