Abstract
    As part of a programme to re-assess the existence of latitudinal gradients in the diversity of the macrobenthic infauna of soft sediments, samples were taken from Sassenfjord, Spitzbergen. Abundancebiomass curves showed the shallowest sites to be moderately disturbed, possibly as a result of glacial run-off from the Gipselva. These clearly differed from a site at 123 m which appeared to be in an undisturbed state. A comparison of the diversity profile of the latter site (78 °N) with those of physically similar sites in the North Sea (55 °N) and off the coast of Java (7 °S), sampled by identical methods, shows no real difference in diversity.
