Abstract

The available literature lacks adequate descriptions 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 southem Gape estuaries are described. Details on tidal levels, sediment types and associated macrophytes are included to assist in burrow identification.
