Abstract: Espirito Santo Bay is a coastal-tropical system, with strong water renovation cycle, which in turn adequate conditions to the development of many planktonic species (Bonecker et al., 1989). Since 1986 a program of ecological studies has been developed by the laboratories of Zooplankton and Ichthyoplankton of the Institute of Biology/UFRJ to provide information for environmental monitoring and management. This paper aims to present the composition of the spatial-temporal patterns of distribution and specific diversity of the zooplankton community related to environmental variables.
