Abstract
    The benthic diatom assemblages of the Westerschelde-estuary were studied by means of multivariate analysis. Two main groups and eight subgroups were distinguished. The relation with salinity and sediment composition was investigated. A clear relation between grain size and the distribution of the assemblages was found.
