Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Often buried just under the surface of the sandy-muddy substrates near mangrove areas (Ref. 80041). Occurs in mudflats. Abundant shells are present among shell debris in shallow tidal channels within lagoons (Ref. 101158). Deposit-feeder (Ref. 348). Suspension feeder (Ref. 108437). Members of the class Bivalvia are mostly gonochoric, some are protandric hermaphrodites. Life cycle: Embryos develop into free-swimming trocophore larvae, succeeded by the bivalve veliger, resembling a miniature clam (Ref. 833).
