A comparison was made of amphipod assemblages on different species of the green alga, Codium both from a protected marine area and from a disturbed area. In addition, a laboratory experiment was conducted to determine habitat selection by amphipods. A total of five species of amphipods was found on Codium species. Amphipods were more abundant in the protected marine area; however, high numbers of amphipod species occurred on Codium fragile where that was a fouling organism in the disturbed area. The results from the experiment showed that amphipods preferred C. fragile as their habitat over any of the other species of Codium. The formation of canopies, the morphology of the plant species, and amphipod morphology, are all likely to influence the distribution and habitat selection by amphipods. Se compararon los ensambles de anfípodos en diferentes especies de Codium, en un área marina protegida y en otra alterada. Adicionalmente, se llevó a cabo un experimento de laboratorio para determinar la selección del hábitat efectuada por los anfípodos. Un total de cinco especies de anfípodos se encontraron en las especie Codium. Los anfípodos fueron más abundantes en el área protegida; sin embargo, un número alto de especies de anfípodos ocurrieron en un Codium fragile contaminado en el área alterada. Los resultados del experimento mostraron que los anfípodos prefirieron el C. fragile como su hábitat más que cualquier otra especie de Codium. La formación de colonias de especies, la morfología de la planta y la morfología de los anfípodos son, probablemente, los factores que influyen en los anfípodos para la selección de su hábitat.
