The paper makes an evaluation of the benthic communities living associated with three different types of substrata in midlittoral and infralittoral marine Romanian shore, at Eforie Nord and Eforie Sud. Data about macrobenthic and meiobenthic populations’ dynamic for each kind of substrata are done. There are also presented results of density variation of benthic populations for this specific two studied sites and variation of taxonomic group’s number, in order to emphasize a comparative view of qualitative and quantitative composition of the main phylogenetic groups of invertebrates which were collected during the research.
