An Ecological Survey of the Marine Invertebrates of Bimini, Bahamas, with a Consideration of their Zoogeographical Relationships
Abstract:The marine invertebrates of the shallow waters of Bimini, Bahamas, are listed, with descriptions of the habitats. Numbers and vertical distribution of the species occupying the intertidal zone and above are given, together with their plant and animal associates. The hydrographic conditions on the Great Bahama Bank are briefly discussed in relation to the distribution of the invertebrates. The fauna is compared with that of Soldier Key in the Florida Keys and the possible origins of the two faunas are discussed.
