Sediment-Mediated Biological Disturbance and the Evolution of Marine Benthos

  • Charles W. Thayer
Part of the Topics in Geobiology book series (TGBI, volume 3)


Disturbance, whether physically or biologically produced, has attracted much ecologic attention, both in the terrestrial (e.g., Bormann and Likens, 1979; Rome, 1982; Runkle, 1982) and marine realms (e.g., Ayling, 1981; Cowen et al., 1982; Knowlton et al., 1981; Littler et al., 1983; Menge and Lubchenco, 1981; Palumbi et al., 1982; Porter et al., 1981, 1982; Seapy and Littler, 1982; Shepherd, 1983; Smedes and Hurd, 1981; Suchanek, 1981; Taylor and Littler, 1982; Thistle, 1980, 1981; Woodley et al., 1981 Zajac and Whitlach, 1982). A particular focus has been biological disturbance of unconsolidated marine sediments (reviewed by Carney, 1981; Gray, 1974; Lee and Swartz, 1980; Rhoads, 1974; Rhoads and Boyer, 1982). Such disturbance is of unusual importance to paleontology because, unlike most ecological processes, it leaves a preservable record.
