Bioturbation refers to the signs and traces formed by the activity of macrofauna living in soft sediment habitats. This can include evidence of burrows, feeding or crawling traces and mounds from a hugely diverse group of organisms. While direct observations of the fauna may not be common, the existence of these traces and the type of trace can help inform which types of bioturbators might be present in an area.
