Quantitative information on the trophic ecology of sea anemone assemblages on rocky shores in the south-western Cape is essential to determine their importance as consumers in littoral ecosystems and to provide information on the partitioning of available resources. Presents a paper which forms part of such a study and which is aimed at determining sources of nutrition utilized by the seven most common species of sea anemones in this area. Examines the coelenteron contents as well as signs of autotrophic nutrition. Illustrates with tables and a dendogram.
