In the Venice lagoon, ostracods from 99 recent samples were studied. The biocoenosis is more abun- dant in the inner margin, near some little channels. The microfaunal analysis delimited three estuarine associa- tions, with numerous valves of Cyprideis torosa, and one marine association (Pontocythere turbida). Salinity, hydro- dynamics, nutrients and substrate are the main factors which control the distribution of these microorganisms. This distribution is very similar in other recent lagoons of Italy.
