AbstractAnalysis of sediments in and around the large and deep burrows made by the callianassid shrimp Callichirus laurae, Jordan Gulf of Aqaba (Red Sea), showed that organic carbon (OC), humic matter (HM), humic (HA) and fulvic acids (FA) are redistributed both quantitatively and qualitatively by sediment reworking activities: 1.OC and humic matter (HM) concentrations are ca. 30 times higher in the stomach content than in surface sand, proving a selective food uptake.2.a 11 to 17 times… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Microbial activity and accumulation of organic matter in the burrow of the mud shrimp, Upogebia major (Crustacea: Thalassinidea)
TLDR
Results indicate that burrow of the mud shrimp provides a dynamic environment for microbial community in tidal flat sediment, and suggests that organic enrichment of theBurrow wall is a result of organic matter particles such as phytodebris accumulation along the burrow wall.
Sediment properties and bacterial community in burrows of the ghost shrimp Pestarella tyrrhena (Decapoda: Thalassinidea)
TLDR
Molecular fingerprints of the bacterial communities showed that the bacterial composition of the burrow wall was more similar to the ambient anoxic sediment and showed less seasonal change than the sediment surface, suggesting that burrow walls have distinct properties and should not be considered merely as a simple extension of the sedimentsurface.
Burrows of Pestarella tyrrhena (Decapoda: Thalassinidea): hot spots for Nematoda, Foraminifera and bacterial densities
TLDR
The burrow walls were most influenced by the shrimp's activity, which corresponds to their nutritional role, and meiofauna densities in CD were highest, demonstrating the ability of P. tyrrhena to create a specific microenvironment within the burrow.
Bioengineering effects of burrowing thalassinidean shrimps on marine soft-bottom ecosystems
TLDR
Most of the effects of thalassinidean shrimps are manifested via their influence on environmental conditions, including the stability, granulometry, turnover and geochemical properties of sediments, all reflecting their powerful ecosystem engineering.
The diet of two mud-shrimps, Calocaris macandreae and Upogebia stellata (Crustacea: Decapoda: Thalassinidea)
TLDR
Variations observed in the diet of Calocaris macandreae and Upogebia stellata were related to changes in food abundance and availability within the diet, and showed little evidence of food selectivity.
Burrow characteristics of the mud shrimp Austinogebia edulis, an ecological engineer causing sediment modification of a tidal flat
TLDR
The mud shrimp Austinogebia edulis transforms the sediment characteristics as an ecological engineer, which is expected to have a significant ecological impact on the ecosystem.

Callianassa trilobata (Crustacea: Thalassinidea) influences abundance of meiofauna and biomass, composition, and physiologic state of microbial communities within its burrow
TLDR
Through construction and maintenance of its burrow, C. trilobata determines not only the absolute and relative abundances of microbes in its sedimentary environment, but their physiologic state as well.

Geochemistry of burrow waters vented by a bioturbating shrimp in Bermudian sediments
TLDR
Burrow irrigation provides a mechanism for the rapid, conservative advection of solutes across the sediment-water interface and therefore is at least partially responsible for the concentration and speciation variations typical of coastal seawater.
