Laboratory Study on Individual and Combined Effects of Cobalt- and Zinc-Spiked Sediment on Meiobenthic Nematodes
Free-living nematodes are the most abundant taxa among the meiobenthos and the predominant prey for bottom-feeding fishes. They are able to accumulate toxicants from sediments which explain their useExpand

An Assessment of the Impact of Chromium-Amended Sediment on a Marine Nematode Assemblage Using Microcosm Bioassays
Microcosms were used to assess the impact of chromium on free-living marine nematodes. Nematodes were exposed to three chromium concentrations (500 ppm (dm, dry mass), 800 ppm (dm) and 1,300 ppmExpand

Morphometry, energetics and diversity of free-living nematodes from coasts of Bizerte lagoon (Tunisia): an ecological meaning
Analyses of water quality in the Bizerte lagoon showed their relative low oxygenation during September 2002 compared to December 2001. Sediment variables appeared directly dependent on the silt/clayExpand
