Dynamics of macrozoobenthos in the Eastern Sivash during different salinity regimes

In current paper we presented the dynamics of the macrozoobenthos in Eastern Sivash depending on temporal and spatial salinity fluctuations from pleiomesohaline to polyhaline and hyperhaline. We shown that the highest species richness and biomass were observed in polyhaline conditions at the lowest salinity values, and the maximum density was in pleiomesohaline conditions. The lowest species riches and biomass were observed in hyperhaline conditions.
