Abstract: We investigated the community diversity of macrobenthos in different habitats of Shupaisha Wetland in Oujiang River estuary in three habitat forms, i.e., mangrove habitat, Spartina alterniflora habitat, and naked beach habitat from October 2014 to June 2015. In total, 48 species were recorded, belonging to 40 genus, 31 families, 15 classes, and 5 phyla. The average inhabitant density and biomass were the highest in mangrove habitat, followed by S. alterniflora habitat and naked beach habitat. In addition, we studied the community diversity of macrobenthos in different habitats using species diversity index and G-F diversity. The mangrove habitat showed higher diversity than those of the other habitats. One-way ANOVA analysis revealed no significant difference in season in species number, inhabitant density, biomass, and species diversity, but in habitat in species number, Shannon-Wiener index, and Margalef species richness. Authors believe that artificial restoration of mangrove will enhance the diversity of macrobenthos community.
