Burrowing Shrimps and Seagrass Dynamics in Shallow-Water by Hildie Maria E. Nacorda

By Hildie Maria E. Nacorda

Based on examine in Bolinao, this e-book assesses the significance of small-scale disturbance by means of burrowing shrimps. It covers the distribution of burrowing shrimp disturbance, the habit of the snapping shrimp Alpheus macellarius in situ and as saw from tank experiments, and the results of temporary burial and leaf clipping at the development styles of the dominant seagrass Thalassia hemprichii. The booklet examines the position of bioturbation through burrowing shrimps in seagrass meadows, foraging recommendations of A. macellarius and its mutualistic symbiosis with Cryptocentrus spp., shrimp disturbance and T. hemprichii, and small-scale disturbance and large-scale dynamics.
