The macrobenthic fauna in three dredged areas in Hampton Roads, Virginia was sampled for 14 months. Repopulation occurred very rapidly after the cessation of dredging, but the dominant species were generally not those previously recorded as mud-bottom dominants in the Hampton Roads area. The faunal changes through time somewhat agreed with those reported in classical successional sequences. This dissertation is from the Joint Program Degree from the College of William & Mary and University of Virginia and awarded by the University of Virginia.
