Factors affecting nematode biomass, length and width from the shelf to the deep sea
The decrease of nematode size with water depth is well documented in the literature. However, many nematode size data sets originate from bathymetric gradients, with strong bias towards deep-water,Expand

The impact of seabed disturbance on nematode communities: linking field and laboratory observations
Physical disturbance is a key factor in controlling the spatial and temporal composition of shallow-water benthic communities. Like shallow waters, deeper waters are increasingly subject to a rangeExpand

A field colonization experiment with meiofauna and seagrass mimics: effect of time, distance and leaf surface area
From a conservation point of view, it is essential to know how fast an ecosystem can recover after physical disturbance. Meiofauna and especially harpacticoid copepods are abundant in seagrass bedsExpand
