|Title:||Phytal Macro and Meiofauna of Chilka Lake|

|Abstract:||Littoral phytal macro and meiofauna of Potamogeton pectinatus, Halohphyla ovata, Gracilaria lichenoides from Chilka Lake have been studied and compared with the littoral phytal and benthic communities of other regions. The patterns of distribution and abundance of these fauna appear to be governed by the physiognomy of the algae and the ambient characteristics of the external milieu besides the degree of epiphytation,sediment deposition and biological growth. The meiofaunal density of Potamageton favourably compares with that of the level bottom communities. In contrast to the benthic communities characterised by high macro-meiofaunal ratios, the phytal have lower ratios.|
