Abstract: The dominant nematode and harpacticoid species inhabiting a sheltered beach at Bermuda were characterized by their vertical Distribution in the Sediment, by their tolerance of high temperature under oxic and anoxic conditions and by their tolerance of extreme pH-values. In 4 species of nematodes the respiratory rate proved to be inversely proportional to the depth at which the species occurs, and directly proportional to the size of the buccal cavity. One species, the nematode Paramonhystera n.sp. is more temperature resistant at zero or near zero pO2 than at atmospheric oxygen pressure; it is the first marine metazoan in which it can be shown that a specific biological process is favourably affected by anoxic conditions if compared with the situation at normal pO2.
