Book Description

This study examines the role of small-scale disturbance by burrowing shrimps and its interaction with seagrass performance against a changing background of anthropogenically altered sediment dynamics. It establishes that the two types of burrowing shrimps redistribute considerable quantities of sediment with siginificant substrate effects on depth gradients of organic matter, grain size and nitrogen.
