The Intertidal Estuarine Communities of Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela
Abstract:The communities of rocky, sandy and muddy shores in the estuary are analyzed and the dominant species are recorded. The observed salinity ranges in mixohaline waters are combined with ranges observed in euhaline waters to give the salinity tolerances for the invertebrates inhabiting the estuary. The action of the substratum is discussed. At the end a summary of the physical conditions and a list of the plants and invertebrates are given.
