|Description||This study investigates how the Puget Sound macrobenthic communities in Commencement Bay have changed over time from 1989 to 2014. The macrobenthic community has many important ecological functions, so understanding the structure of these communities and how they may be changing over time is critically important for conservation efforts.
The Department of Ecology’s Marine Sediment Monitoring Team collected specimens in Commencement Bay as part of the annual sediment quality monitoring work conducted in partnership with the Puget Sound Ecosystem Monitoring Program (PSEMP).
This poster was presented at the Pacific Estuarine Research Society conference, March 20-21, 2015, in Seattle, Washington.
