Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in the intertidal and subtidal reefs (Ref. 102518). Larger species feed by filtering plankton and organic particles from the water column while smaller species can pick up organic matter from the sediments and filter feed organic matter (Ref. 107862). Members of the class Polychaeta are gonochoric (sexual), gametes are spawned through the metanephridia or body wall rupturing (Ref. 833).
