Abstract

Bivalve suspension feeders are dominant herbivores in many shallow coastal ecosystems, and may control phytoplankton biomass and affect nutrient cycling. The objective of this study was to examine the interactions between bivalve grazers and the pelagic system under eutrophic conditions. [KEYWORDS: Mytilus edulis; phytoplankton; primary production; nutrient cycling]
