CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE ECOLOGY OF PARANEBALIA BELIZENSIS FROM THE WATERS OFF CENTRAL BELIZE, CENTRAL AMERICA
Journal of Crustacean Biology
Characteristics that define the habitat of the leptostracan Paranebalia belizensis Modlin, inhabiting the waters of Twin Cays, a group of Belizian mangrove-covered islands, are described. A primary component of the habitat of this species appears to be Halimeda opuntia. The complex structure of this macroalga creates a filter that traps waterborne detrital particles; thus it collects the food of leptostracans. It also functions as a refuge from predation because its natural defenses discouragedoi:10.1163/193724096x00559 fatcat:ywsb4yhvpjedzizlj3xhdn66nm
