Biogenic reefs produced by agglutinate Sabellariid tube-worms are unusual mesolittoral and upper infralittoral bioconstructions. They are valuable marine habitats which are a focus for protection owing to their role in substrate stabilization and enhancing biodiversity. Because of the precise environmental requirements of these worms, i.e. rough waters and suspended sandy particles, sabellariid reefs are rare and localized in restricted coastal areas.

Abstract

Biogenic reefs produced by agglutinate Sabellariid tube-worms are unusual mesolittoral and upper infralittoral bioconstructions. They are valuable marine habitats which are a focus for protection owing to their role in substrate stabilization and enhancing biodiversity. Because of the precise environmental requirements of these worms, i.e. rough waters and suspended sandy particles, sabellariid reefs are rare and localized in restricted coastal areas.
