Dear list mates,
Still writing the manuscript on polychaete patterns off La Gomera Island
(Tenerife, Spain). I have a question regarding the characteristic
occurrence of Hyalinoecia bilineata in my study sites that may be related to
their flexible feeding behaviour and the oligotrophic condition of the
Fauchald & Jumars (1979) have suggested that Hyalinoecia spp. are
opportunists displaying omnivorous scavenging and high motility and are
better represented in nutrient-poor, shifting sands than any other onuphid.
Do you know of any published study where such pattern is confirmed? If so,
could you give the full reference of it?
