Abstract: In between the grains of sand on the ocean floor, there exists a world which few people are aware of. Representatives of almost all animal phyla can be found here. The clitellate family Enchytraeidae is in the marine interstitial environment represented in large part by species of a genus called Grania, which are long slender worms found in marine sands throughout the world. This thesis is a study on the systematics of these worms. The body wall of Grania is searched for phylogenetically informa... more
