Caulerpa racemosa spread effects on the meiofauna of the Gulf of Taranto Effetti della colonizzazione di Caulerpa racemosa sulla meiofauna del Golfo di Taranto

Caulerpa racemosa spread effects on the meiofauna of the Gulf of Taranto Effetti della colonizzazione di Caulerpa racemosa sulla meiofauna del Golfo di Taranto
Meiofaunal dynamics and their relationship with the lessepsian Caulerpa racemosa spread were investigated in the Gulf of Taranto (Southern Italy). Data on the meiobenthos collected from 9 coastal stations in July 2001, were compared with results of a previous study carried out in the same area (7 stations) in June 1995, when Caulerpa still did not occur. Algal covering appeared to increase meiofaunal average density, but probably limited the abundance of some mesopsammic species and promoted clear changes in meiobenthic crustacean assemblage.
