Title: SEASONAL AND SPATIAL-DISTRIBUTION OF KALLIAPSEUDES-SCHUBARTI MANE-GARZON, (TANAIDACEA, CRUSTACEA) IN THE ARACA REGION, SAO-SEBASTIAO (SP)
Author: LEITE, FPP
Abstract: Information on the seasonal density and spatial contribution of Kalliapseudes schubarti Mane-Garzon. 1949, common tanaidacean along southeastern mud-flats and estuaries of Brazil, was obtained by a mensal sampling of 0,05m(2) of sediment in the Araca region, Sao Sebastiao (SP), along 14 stations. High densities of K.schubarti were obtained throughout the year in sts. 3 to 8, specially in the spring. At these sites very fine sand occurred, with high organic matter due to the contribution of some mangrove vegetation and rocky coast vicinity. The carbonate was specially conspicuous in sts. 1 and 2 because of the introduction of shell fragments carried from Pernambuco Island. However in sts. 9 to 14 a compact, well sorted, very fine sand was obtained with a few interstitial water during low tide, where occasional occurrence and low density of K. schubarti was verified. There is indication that this tanaidacean has a preference for fine sediment with high organic matter and is adapted to a wide range of salinity and temperature.
