Benthos

The assemblage of organisms (both fauna and flora) inhabiting the seafloor. Macrobenthos are those forms larger than 1 mm, which are dominated by worms, echinoderms, sponges, ascidians, and crustaceans. The microbenthos, smaller than 0.1 mm, include bacteria, diatoms, ciliates, amoeba, and flagellates.
