Abstract

This review draws examples from a wide range of marine environments, including estuaries, the intertidal zone, continental shelves and slopes, and the deep sea. It firstly considers sediment stabilisation, slope failure, sediment mixing, biodeposition, sediment compaction, and hydrodynamic effects. This is followed by a consideration of 2 extremes of the ecological pyramide, the effects of marine meiofauna and marine vertebrates. The central role of faunal mucus and extracellular polymeric material (ECPM) in many of microscale interactions is analysed. The implications of these microscale biological processes and features are discussed in terms of their influence on and control of the large-scale geomorphology of the seabed
