Effects of seawater acidification on a coral reef meiofauna
However, in the marine literature psammic comunities are more often referred to as meiofauna
are generally defined as animals 45 [micro]m to 1 mm that live between sediment grains (Mare, 1942; Giere, 2009).
An improved protocol for separating meiofauna
from sediments using colloidal silica sols.
Hydrodynamics changes the physicochemical sedimentary environment and food availability which are directly related to meiofauna
spatial distribution patterns .

Sediment organic Matter and meiofauna
community response to long-term fish farm impact in the Ligurian Sea (Western Mediterranean).
They cover design and analysis in benthic surveys in environmental sampling, characterizing the physical properties of seabed habitats, imaging techniques, diving, macrofauna and meiofauna
techniques, deep-sea benthic sampling, measuring the flow of energy and matter in marine benthic animal populations, and phytobenthos techniques.
