Abstract
Sandy beaches constitute important ecosystems from both ecological and socioeconomic standpoints. The ecosystems of tropical zones present a high diversity and are sensible to global climatic changes, as well as to local impacts. Despite its relevance, researches on biodiversity and existing ecological processes, like size distribution of plankton communities, in these regions are often neglected. Here, the first results of a study on the structure of zooplankton communities in a tropical sandy beach (Equatorial Southwestern Atlantic) is presented. Species were divided in two size classes (micro- and mesozooplantkon) in order to verify which possess higher diver...
