- n. Alternative form of pseudofaeces.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Relatively stationary, these filter feeding mussels remove suspended algae, bacteria, zooplankton, and phytoplankton from the water column redistributing it in the form of feces and pseudofeces biodeposits.
They deposit these pollutants as pseudofeces, loose pellets of mucous mixed with particulate matter that they filter from the water.
Scavenging animals that eat the pseudofeces may pass these pollutants up the food chain. "
