The dynamics of ensembles of oscillators containing a small number of bibitemlits is discussed. The possible types of regimes and pecularities of bifurcations of regular and quasi-periodic attractors are analyzed. By using the method of Lyapunov exponents charts the picture of  embedding of quasi-periodic regimes of different dimension in the parameter space is revealed. Dynamics of ensembles of van der Pol and phase oscillators are compared.
