AB Theme Section 3:

Directions in bivalve feeding

Editor: Peter G. Beninger

AB Theme Section 3 focuses on bivalve feeding. On hard or soft substrates, in natural environments or farmed by man, various bivalve species may form vast assemblages comprising millions of individuals, thus conspicuously dominating many coastal habitats. Most bivalve species are filter-feeders and show complex particle processing, a major motor of pelago-benthic coupling. Merely by their number, and by their sophisticated feeding process, bivalves impact their environment in many ways.
