The marine flora and fauna of the China seas are characterized by high biodiversity, including both the yellow sea and Bohai Sea. Among various flora and fauna, marine Polychaetes are known to play an important ecological role in the marine environment. In marine benthic communities, the most dominant group considered is the Polychaetes. Various species are used as an indicator organism for environmental quality assessment of marine sediments and Polychaetes are often considered as the most dominant group in marine benthic communities. Based on comprehensive investigation in certain areas the species distribution pattern of benthic Polychaetes can provide an ecological oriented environmental assessment and overall theoretical support for the protection and management of marine benthic ecosystems. This review determines (a) the marine biodiversity in Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea (b) ecological features of Polychaetes including diversity, relationship between Polychaetes and environment. (c) Effects of water quality on Polychaetes including Effects of temperature, Spatio-temporal change on community. (d) Significance of Macrobenthic ecology in China seas.Pages: 354-363 | 267 Views 20 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
