Authors


Abstract

The fauna of a number of intertidal habitats ranging from estuarine mud to marine sand has been examined in the region of Porto Novo, south-east India. Quantitative estimates of meiofauna and macrofauna are given, and the distribution and relationships of these two size categories discussed. Comparison is made with intertidal areas in other parts of the world.
