Nice article. It does bring up good point.
"why aren't adults of each species found in lower strata than juveniles of the same species?"
It really is simple. Dead carcasses of the same species have the same density so the settle in the mud the same.
"This factor predicts that the largest animals should be found on the bottom"
It's density not size that determines the settling of the carcasses.
Good article though. Unlike flushing bob.
facts are fun!
