Abstract

The macrobenthos at eighty-four locations in North Bay (Galway Bay) was surveyed using a 0.1m² van Veen grab. Hierarchical classification of the resultant data revealed a number of associations whose distribution is considered against a background of certain information on the physical (sediment particle size) and chemical (heavy metal and organic carbon levels) environment. These associations are compared with Petersen-style equivalents in boreo-mediterranean seas and each is examined in terms of its species diversity, evenness and richness.
