A manipulative field experiment examining the effect of contaminated sediment on the recruitment of soft-sediment infauna (Mar 1998 - Feb 1999).
Entry ID: ASAC_2201_Casey_SRE2

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The effect of location and sediment contamination on recruitment of soft-sediment assemblages were examined in field experiment at Casey Station, East Antarctica. Four locations were used, a polluted bay adjacent to an old disused tip site (Brown Bay), a bay adjacent to the Casey Station sewage outfall, and two undisturbed control locations in O'Brien Bay. At each location two types of defaunated ... View entire text
