Abstract

Although many macrobenthic organisms spend part of their lives as transient members of the meiofauna (Thorson, 1966), relatively little quantitative data are available on their interactions in the meiobenthos. For example, Muus (1973) presents data on macrobenthic larval settling and mortality rates, and the duration of their stay in this habitat.
