The study of meiofauna, the motile microscopic fauna of aquatic sediments, is increasingly appreciated in modern aquatic ecology. This special issue includes invited and selected papers presented at the 16th International Meiofauna Conference in Heraklion, Crete, Greece between 3rd and 8th July 2016. The collection of papers presents some of the most recent and exciting advances in meiobenthology. It offers insights into potential limitations as well as opportunities for meiobenthic studies and reflects on the challenges which lie ahead for future research endeavors in the field.
