In keeping with examine in Bolinao, this publication assesses the significance of small-scale disturbance through 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 ebook examines the function 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.
