Bioturbation and bioirrigation induced by burrowing macrofauna are recognized as important processes in aquatic sediment since macrofaunal activities lead to the alteration of sediment characteristics. However, there is a lack of information on how macrofauna influence microbial abundance and extracellular enzyme activity in mangrove sediment. In this study, the environmental parameters, extracellular enzyme activities, and microbial abundance were determined and their relationships were… CONTINUE READING
