Abstract

The research was carried out at a sea disposal site located in the Ligurian Sea, some miles off the northern coast of Tuscany, Italy. In the site is preferentially dumped material dredged from the harbor of Leghorn. A faunistic survey of sediment cores taken in three impacted stations found evidence of rapid meiofaunal recolonization of the damped material; furthermore, two weeks after the dumping we cannot detect statistically significant differences between density of total meiofauna and most major taxa in the impacted vs a control site.
