    Biogeographical patterns in the fauna associated with southern African mussel beds

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Macrofauna communities colonizing intertidal mussel beds were sampled at seven sites between Swakopmund (Namibia) and Salt Rock (KwaZulu-Natal). Mean mussel cover, length, biomass and bed depth were all low in the southeast (former Transkei). Faunal abundance and biomass were minimal...

    Species richness, endemicity and distribution patterns of South African sea anemones (Cnidaria: Actiniaria &amp; Corallimorpharia)

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    A revised and updated list of South African sea anemones is compiled and the distribution pattern and endemicity of each determined from museum and literature records. Forty nine valid species are recognized. Species richness appears fairly uniform around the coast,...
