Sublethal predation and regeneration in two onuphid polychaetes: patterns and implications.

Abstract

We examined sublethal predation in the polychaete Diopatra cuprea, an important ecosystem engineer of intertidal and shallow subtidal marine sediments in the western Atlantic. D. cuprea commonly loses its antennae and portions of its anterior to predator attacks; these lost body portions are subsequently regenerated. We asked (i) if the intensity of… (More)
