The Comparative Roles of Suspension-Feeders in Ecosystems: Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on The Comparative Roles of Suspension-Feeders in Ecosystems Nida, Lithuania 4–9 October 2003

Animals are an important hyperlink among the water column (pelagic) and the ground (benthic) habitats in such a lot shallow platforms. This coupling is ruled by means of lively techniques equivalent to suspension-feeding during which the organism actively makes use of power to pump water that's then filtered to take away suspended debris which are fed on whereas undigested continues to be are deposited at the backside.

The area with high abundance, however, shows another pattern than in Limacina lesueuri, being found in the boundary currents, the N.
