Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Minimum depth from Ref. 104203. Littoral (Ref. 2754). Found on coralligenous habitats (Ref. 105982). In general, suspension feeding bivalves mainly depend on phytoplankton and detritus material for nutrition (Ref. 107088). 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).
