  • The presence of morphologically similar but genetically distinct species has impacted biogeographical and ecological paradigms. In marine sediments, free‐living nematodes form one of the most abundant and diverse faunal groups. Inferring the importance of nematode diversity for ecosystem functioning requires species‐level identification, which is hampered by the lack of easily observable diagnostic characters and the presence of cryptic species. New techniques are urgently needed to adequately… CONTINUE READING
