A first snapshot of sandy-beach amphipod (Crustacea) assemblage in a Marine Protected Area, Favignana Island (central Mediterranean Sea)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The aim of this study is to compile a preliminary first check-list of Amphipoda species frombeaches of Favignana Island (Sicily, Italy), and contribute to the knowledge relating to thedistribution of this taxon in the Mediterranean Sea. Five amphipod species, belonging to twofamilies (Talitridae and Hyalidae), have been collect in the island. The supralittoral assemblageappears to contain three main biogeographical categories: Atlanto-Mediterranean species,Mediterranean endemic species and cosmopolitan species.
