Metagenetic analysis of patterns of distribution and diversity of marine meiobenthic eukaryotes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Electronic versions



Meiofaunal communities that inhabit the marine benthos offer unique opportunities to simultaneously study the macroecology of numerous phyla that exhibit different life-history strategies. Here, we ask: (1) if the macroecology of meiobenthic communities is explained mainly by dispersal constraints or by environmental conditions; and (2) if levels of meiofaunal diversity surpass existing estimates based on morphological taxonomy.
