    • Abstract


      Based on the collections of benthic ostracodes during January-December 1977 from two selected marginal water bodies, namely Bimili backwater and Balacheruvu tidal stream on the east coast of India, the quantitative variations in the ostracode fauna have been studied in relation to the sedimentological characteristics like sand, silt and clay and organic matter content.
