Title: Environmental variables and intertidal beach annelids of Sao Sebastiao Channel (State of Sao Paulo, Brazil)
Author: Rizzo, AE

Abstract: Benthic annelid communities were studied during a one-year period (August/95 to July/96) in two sectors of the beaches Engenho d'Agua and Sao Francisco, Sao Sebastiao Channel (Sao Paulo, Brazil), where the substrate is composed by a mixture of sand and rock fragments. Abiotic parameters such as salinity of interstitial water and sediment properties were used to characterize the environment. The polychaetes were well represented in the two sectors and their distribution was related with sediment type, The density of individuals and the number of taxa was higher at Sao Francisco. while the diversity and the evenness were higher at Engenho d'Agua. This difference can be a consequence of organic enrichment caused by domestic input, and of the lower and more variable salinity at Sao Francisco. Due to these factors. the high density of opportunistic species, like Capitella capitata ssp,. Scolelepis squamata, Laeonereis acuta and several oligochaetes, represented 75.5% of total abundance at this sector.
