This e-book includes the papers awarded at a NATO complex study Institute on "Mediterranean Marine Ecosystems", held at Heraklion-Crete, Greece, from September 23-27, 1983. A workshop instead of a convention, it was once backed via the Eco-Sciences detailed Programme Panel, in cooperation with the Marine technology Panel. The 3rd of its type, it was once scheduled within the framework of a venture on a multidisciplinary built-in method of the research of the Mediterranean. This Sea and the encompassing land used to be not just the cradle of many civilizations yet is, as much as the current time, one of many significant global parts of marine site visitors, communique and exchanges, fisheries and aquacultures, inshore human actions and ••• pollu­ tion. To a definite measure it constitutes a big normal labo­ ratory, the place the destiny of threatened aquatic and terrestrial eco­ platforms together with the human one, is established. The Mediterranean Sea, with its geological heritage and current­ day geographic, hydrological and weather conditions is assumed to shape an ecological entity. very important exchanges and mutual impacts ensue with the encompassing land zone and the water lots, clearly (Atlantic, Black Sea) or artificially (Red Sea), attached to the Mediterranean. consequently, a greater and in-depth wisdom of many of the ecosystems, benthic, planktonic and nektonic, neritic or pelagic, within the Western or the jap Basin appears to be like a pre­ considered necessary to any motion in maintaining, upgrading and coping with the ordinary assets of the area.

The advantage of the simultaneous discovery of the specificity of the galleries and of the microzonation of the species is considerably great. It has even made possible the ecological interpretation of the fossil biokarst. Soft substrata. Although the conditions of humectation are the same for the fauna of both hard and soft substrates, the problem is complicated in the latter case by absorption of porewater, a factor particularly difficult to evaluate. ): between the pebbles exist a mass of organic detritic matter deposited by the sea, in which lives a population composed essentially of detrit°ivorous species: Echinogammarus olivii (=Gammarus olivii), Sphaeroma serratum, A110rchestes aqui1inus.

Two types of coralligenous biocenoses, based on the origin of formation, can be mentioned: • Coralligenous biocenosis of the Lower Side of the Littoral Rock, specifically that formed from rocky surfaces; • Coralligenous banks, when the biocenosis results from a biological concretionary process originating from the coarse elements of the soft substrata. Evidently, it could be very difficult to distinguish these two types. The characteristic coralligenous species are numerous and consist, above all, of Algae, serpulid polychaetes, bryozoans, sponges which participate in the concretionary process and the associated motile species: polychaetes, crustaceans, pelecypods.
