In accordance with study in Bolinao, this ebook 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 consequences of non permanent burial and leaf clipping at the progress styles of the dominant seagrass Thalassia hemprichii. The booklet examines the function of bioturbation by means of burrowing shrimps in seagrass meadows, foraging concepts of A. macellarius and its mutualistic symbiosis with Cryptocentrus spp., shrimp disturbance and T. hemprichii, and small-scale disturbance and large-scale dynamics.

We noted, however, that the unvegetated substrates had other shrimp-goby associations that accounted for the observed increase and not by the A. macellarius–Cryptocentrus sp. symbiosis that occurred in the seagrass beds. In Site 6 (Malilnep), for instance, we found occurrences of two banded Alpheus sp. individuals that alternated in expelling chela-loads of burrow sediment, and recognized the prawn goby C. polyophthalmus guarding several burrows. 043 1 91 9 + – + – Burrow opening density Sand mound density Shaft/ pit density H.
