The small-sized benthic biota of the Håkon Mosby Mud Volcano (SW Barents Sea slope)
The contribution of deep-sea macrohabitat heterogeneity to global nematode diversity
It is shown that macrohabitat heterogeneity contributes significantly to total deep-sea nematode diversity on a global scale, and that many areas and habitats remain highly under-sampled, affecting the ability to understand fully the contribution of habitat heterogeneity versus regional differences to global nematodes diversity.

A new species of vesicomyid bivalve is described based on shell morphology, from the Nyegga cold methane seep area on the Norwegian continental margin, the northernmost record of recent representatives of the family Vesicomyidae.
Nematode species distribution patterns at the Hakon Mosby Mud Volcano (Norwegian Sea)
The Hakon Mosby Mud Volcano (HMMV) is a methane seep that is densely populated by the bacteria Beggiatoa spp. as well as by tubeworms of the Family Siboglinidae. Analyses of samples from seven…
Description of two free-living nematode species of Halomonhystera disjuncta complex (Nematoda: Monhysterida) from two peculiar habitats in the sea
Morphological descriptions of two Halomonhystera species (Nematoda, Monhysterida) are presented and the genus Halomon Hystera Andrássy 2006 is redefined, and its morphospecies list is reviewed.

The modal size fraction of meiobenthos and nematodes regardless of microbiotopes fell on samples that were obtained on sieves with 63–125 μm mesh sizes, and the species diversity decreased in the direction from the background biotope to siboglinid fields and further to bacterial mats.

Two new and three known species of the genera Aponema Jensen, 1978, Molgolaimus Ditlevsen, 1921, Sabatieria Rouville, 1903, and Terschellingia De Mann, 1888 were found at the deep-sea Hakon Mosby Mud…
Meiobenthos and nematode community in Yenisei Bay and adjacent parts of the Kara Sea shelf
The trophic structure of the taxocene of nematodes in Yenisei Bay is dominated by nematode with well-defined stoma and are differently armed, and the estuary and shelf are dominated by selective and nonselective deposit feeders.
