Abstract As a part of the Functional Ecology Program on Chesapeake Bay submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV), this study investigated infaunal and epifaunal trophic dynamics. The main study area established for investigating the functional ecology of resident consumers in the lower Chesapeake Bay was a large grass bed located at Vaucluse Shores on the bayside of Virginia's eastern shore. The bed contained the two dominant lower Bay macrophyte species, Zostera marina and Ruppia maritima; and the bed was large enough to simultaneously accommodate varied studies and sampling regimes. This bed was intensively mapped in 1978 and 1979, and permanent transects were established for sampling reference points.
