Note(s): An examination of macrofaunal microhabitats within a seagrass meadow was conducted in Apalachee Bay (north Florida). Core samples were taken from two substrata within the grassbed, Thalassia testudinum shoots and bare areas among the shoots, and compared with the fauna collected in randomly placed cores. Seagrass samples showed significantly greater numbers of individuals and species than the other two treatments.
