Lewis JB


Abstract

The benthic communities between 50 and 400 m are described. Three community groupings were observed: a sponge and coral community between 50 and 150 m; a rich and diverse community of coelenterates, molluscs, and echinoderms, between 100 and 300 m; and a community dominated by molluscs, between 300 and 400 m.
