  • All Possible Combinations Of The Four Amphipod Species Were Found
  • Although Species Presence/Absence Was Stable Between Seasons At The Scale Of The Whole Lough
  • It Was Extremely Fluid At The Scale Of Individual Sites
  • 82% Of Which Changed In Species Composition Between Seasons
  • Overall Mean Amphipod Abundance Was Similar Across 5 Distinguishable Habitat Types
  • But There Were Differences In Species Compositions Among These Habitats

  • This Latter Pattern Was At Least In Part Generated By The Better Tolerance Of C
