Communities of Marmara infralittoral (coastal) detritic bottoms

Description (English)

The substrate is often patchy and is comprised of a mix of cobbles, pebbles, shelly gravels and silted cobbles. The effects of currents and wave action are varied, and influences the type of substrate present and whether it is overlain by silt. These different substrates can support a diverse range of faunal communities. These include spirorbid worms, crustaceans and ascidians.
