Beds of free-living coated nodules (coralline algae, bryozoans, acervulinid foraminifera) create shallow-water carbonate biogenic benthic habitats, which are sensitive to human disturbance and slow to recover. Holocene bryoliths, ranging from sub-spheroidal, sub-discoidal to sub-ellipsoidal in shape, were found scattered in the foredunes in ca. 30-km stretch along the Hermenegildo and Concheiros do Albardão beaches on the southernmost coast of Brazil (Santa Vitória do Palmar municipality, Rio...[Show more]
