Abstract
In the present research work an attempt was made to highlight the importance of meiofauna in ecology. Meiofauna are small aquatic organisms ranging 30–500 μm in body size, and are amongst the most abundant and highly diversified metazoans on Earth including 22 over 35 known animal Phyla and accounting for more than 2/3 of the abundance of metazoan organisms. The biodiversity of this component in marine ecosystems is far from being accurately estimated, but this would be a new challenge given the importance that meiofaunal components may play in marine ecosystem functioning and processes.
