Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Lying free of fine sand, silt or mud bottoms, commonly in association with marine grasses, coral rubble, and rocks. Sublittoral, form shallow subtidal waters to depths of about 55 m. Able to swim about in jerky motion when disturbed. Occurs frequently in large numbers (Ref. 348). 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).
