Abstract

Benthic macroinvertebrates (0.5 mm sieve) were sampled quarterly during the period June 1979-April 1980 in the oligohaline habitat in the vicinity of the C. P. Crane Generating Station, and in three reference areas in tributaries of Chesapeake Bay. Communities were distinguished according to sediment type (sand vs mud groups) and water depth (creek vs river-bay assemblages).
