Temporal variability of a meiofaunal assemblage on beaches

Meiofauna are tiny creatures belonging to a wide suite of animal forms and groups that are found in large densities on any shallow-water habitat. Yet, we lack basic knowledge on the structure and dynamic of these animals. We have described the temporal changes over a 1 year period of a meiofaunal assemblage inhabiting two beaches at Tenerife.
