Maximum density of meiofauna was recorded during the southwest monsoon season (June to September). The major part of the faunal group consisted of cladocerans (47%) followed by nematodes (15%) and harpacticoids (14%). None ...
A quantitative analysis of fine scale distribution of intertidal meiofauna in response to food resources
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1996)
Fine scale vertical and spatial distribution of meiofauna in relation to food abundance was studied in the intertidal sediment at Dias Beach. The major abiotic factors showed significant changes and progressive fine scale ...
Environmental impact assessment of benthic community stability in an estuarine complex
(Society of Biosciences, Muzaffarnagar, India, 1993)
Comparison of macrobenthic communities of an estuarine complex at Goa revealed significant changes in faunal structure, in time and space, in less than ten years (1972-73 - 1982-83). The composition of the community was ...
