Caulerpa prolifera cover fluctuated on a small spatio-temporal scale and influenced associated invertebrate macrofaunal communities. The subject of this study was to determine the effects of the annual vegetative cycle of Caulerpa on the composition of these animal communities. The different stations studied were distributed on a gradient based on the density of Caulerpa, but the fauna seemed capable of discriminating between only wide degrees of vegetation cover (high, intermediate and low… CONTINUE READING
