Abstract
    The paper reports on the study of Reineck-box samples taken in the Bay of Biscay during the years 1972-1974. The analysis of the quantitative variations of meiobenthos has been made with particular reference to granulometry of sediments and organic matter data. These variation may be explained by the high diversity of substrata found within rater small areas. Population abundance cannot be directly correlated to the amount of organic material in sediment. It seems to be subordinate to an intermediate agent- probably bacteria- which allows utilization of the primary energetic level by meiofauna.
