Population ecology and community structure of sub-tidal soft sediment dwelling macro-invertebrates of Konkan, west coast of India
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1991)
Population density of benthos varied from 350 to 29,975 m super(-2) (X = 4325, SD = + or - 5939) in the study area. The fauna was mainly composed of Polychaeta (76.96%), Crustacea (4.93%), Echinodermata (4.36%) and other ...
