By ΑΘΑΝΑΣΙΟΣ ΚΟΥΚΟΥΡΑΣ

Abstract

THE QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE COMPOSITION OF THE MEDIOLITTORAL BENTHIC COMMUNITIES ON THE SOFT SUBSTRATE IN STRYMONIKOS GULF AND IN THE GULF OF THESSALONIKI ARE ANALYSED. THE COMMUNITIES STUDIED ARE THE FOLLOWING: A) THE COMMUNITY OF THE MEDIOLITTORAL GRAVELS, B) THE COMMUNITY OF THE MEDIOLITTORAL SEDIMENTS IN BRAKISH WATERS AND C) THE COMMUNITY OF THE MEDIOLITTORAL SANDS. THE CORRESPONDING COMMUNITIES IN THE TWO GULFS ARE COMPARED AND THE "SUBCOMMUNITY OF THE POLLUTED MEDIOLITTORAL SANDS WITH TURBELLARIA AND OLIGOCHAETA" IS DESCRIBED. THE LOCAL DISTRIBUTION OF THE POPULATIONS IN THE MEDIOLITTORAL SANDS IS ALSO GIVEN AS WELL AS THE DYNAMICS OF THIS COMMUNITY. THE VARIOUS INFORMATION OBTAINED IS COMPARED TO THAT EXISTING ON THE CORRESPONDING COMMUNITIES INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA.
