Benthos - Aquatic Ecosystem

The benthos or the benthic organisms are those found living in or on the bottom or benthic region of the water mass. They exhibit a variety of adaptations to the environment. The reason for this is that the bottom is a more heterogeneous habitat than either the open water or the surface and this diversity is reflected in the organisms. Practically ekry aquatic ecosystem contains well developed benthos. The adaptations of the organisms in the benthic community reflect the composition of the bottom, its stability or tendency to shift, and its depth.
