Seasonal and inter-annual variations in the density of the invasive polychaete Streblospio gynobranchiata were noted in the south Caspian Sea when sediment conditions were examined at five and 14 meters depths in 2005 and 2010. There was no clear trend in changing density in line one but in line two, in all seasons except summer, density of S. gynobranchiata decreased significantly. Maximum densities of 2,040 ind./m−2 and 1,013 ind./m−2 were obtained in 2005 and 2010, respectively. Although the percentage of total organic matter as a food resource increased from 2005 to 2010, the density of S. gynobranchiata decreased slightly in the same period. It seems that in this invasion phase the population of S. gynobranchiata has decreased to a balance condition. There is evidence that the changing density of this species is also being affected by other biotic/abiotic factors like intra/interspecific competitors and pollutants.

structure with stable aggregates. Free particulate organic matter in soil (fPOM) or occluded POM within the soil aggregates (oPOM) represent plant and animal residues undergoing decomposition and are generally increasing aggregation ( Six et al., 2000 ). POM fractions have been observed to respond more sensitively to soil management changes than to the total soil organic carbon (OC) ( Golchin et al., 1994 ; Chan et al., 2002 ), especially occluded POM that may be lost from soil aggregates due to intense cultivation ( Golchin et al., 1994 ). Cultivation has also been

dynamic oxidation and reduction conditions [ Kalembasa, Becher 2010 ]. In the analysed soils, material correlation was also found as regards the content of phosphorus and aluminium. No material dependencies were found as regards the accumulation of the said element on magnesium and calcium. Selected and most characteristic dependencies of the described features were presented in a graphic form ( Figs. 1 – 4 ).
