oa Madoqua - Macrofaunal community structure and zonation of two sandy beaches on the central Namib coast, South West Africa/ Namibia

Volume 16, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1011-5498



Two exposed beaches on the central Namib coast were sampled quantitatively to determine intertidal macrofaunal community structure and zonation. The shallow subtidal rnacrofaunal community of the more protected beach was sampled using a diver-operated suction sampler. Both beaches support moderately rich communities showing affinities to regions both to the north and south. Zonation patterns of the macrofauna on both beaches are discussed and compared with other sites.
