The abundance and spatial distribution of the giant onuphid polychaete worm
Americonuphis reesei in sand flats from the upper Gulf of Nicoya was described by Rojas and Vargas (2008).
In this study, we specifically examined 1) the depth distribution of newly settled crabs and how it changes through the summer, 2) the possible association between crabs and habitat created by polychaete worm
tubes, and 3) differences in crab size and distribution between embayments with varying characteristics of sediment and physical exposure.
And in Raible's lab, a polychaete worm
flees light--even after beheading.
