Volume 23, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1562-7020
  • E-ISSN: 2224-073X



The available literature lacks adequate descriptionptions for the identification of the burrows of common South African estuarine benthic organisms. The burrows of three crab, two prawn, two bivalve and a polychaete species commonly encountered in southern Cape estuaries are descriptionbed. Details on tidal levels, sediment types and associated macrophytes are included to assist in burrow identification.
