Marine benthic communities inhabiting flat bottomareas with soft and hard grounds have been well docu-mented [1, 3, 4, 8, 12–14, 18, 19, 21, 25]. The macrob-enthos of these communites is represented by sessileand vagile hydrobionts dominated by mollusks, poly-chaetes, macroalgae, and echinoderms. Vast monospe-cific mussel settlements (so-called mussel banks), lam-inaria, and fucoid growths are well known.The studies that analyze the interaction betweenbenthic communities and the near-bottom water… CONTINUE READING
