The reworked but unconsolidated sediments are subject to resuspension (Aller and Dodge 1974, Rowden et al. , for bacteria; Gilbert et al. , for diatoms, meiofauna (Suchanek and Colin 1986, Branch and Pringle, 1987), and macrofauna (Posey et al. 1991, Berkenbusch et al. 2000). The presence of complex burrows that open to the sediment-water interface provides oxygenation of the sediments (Forster and Graf 1992) and bioventilation redistributes oxygen and nutrients to the water column (Koike and Mukai 1983, Waslenchuk et al.
