Here splinters from large mammal bones have been identified, together with microfauna
, a phalanx and an astragalus from a mountain goat (Capra pyrenaica) and an incisor from a young horse (Equus caballus).

of a beechwood.
However, in contrast with these geochemical results, both abundance and number of species of the microfauna
are very low along the estuarine intertidal flats and they have normal values on the marsh areas.
Macropores are formed in several ways, such as chemical weathering, shrinking, frost action, plant root channelling, and earthworm and other microfauna
burrowing (Beven and Germann 1982).
Conditioned substrates, presumably colonized by microfauna
, are also known to facilitate brachiopod settlement (Percival, 1960).
1992, Hanlon 1982), or by tearing them into smaller pieces (Camilleri 1992, Micheli 1993), crabs likely increase rates of decomposition above those accomplished by microbes and microfauna
alone (Kavanagh and Kellman 1992).
The sedimentary series is described and their microfauna
was extracted from 5 soil samples, each comprising 5 cores 2.5 cm in diameter from 0-10 cm depth.
