Preliminary Investigation of the Fecal Pellets of Certain Invertebrates of the South Florida Area
Abstract:Representative invertebrates from the South Florida area were collected and their fecal pellets were studied. The shape, consistency, presence or absence of external and internal sculpture were observed, and cross-sections of the pellets were made where possible. Pellets of gastropod and pelecypod mollusks were the main objects of study; some crustacean groups were also collected for study.
