Ptycholaimellus hibernus n. sp. from the muddy subtidal of North Inlet Estuary, Georgetown, South Carolina, is described and a key to the genus is provided. P. hibernus differs from all other species of Ptycholaimellus by the shape of the gubernaculum. Ptycholaimellus sp. 2 Hopper 1969 is synonymized with P. ponticus. The abundance of P. hibernus, measured over a 3-year period, is greatest from January to March, coinciding with minimal annual water temperatures (10-15 C). P. hibernus abundance…

Unraveling free-living marine nematode community structure from a biodiversity-rich tropical coastal setting based on molecular approaches

The importance of including 18S rRNA marine nematode sequences in published nucleotide databases targeted specifically from biodiversity-rich tropical coastal regions so that it can ultimately improve the understanding of marine Nematode community structure and diversity patterns, population genetics and nematodes systematics is highlighted.



Influence of temperature on the reproductive potential of Oncholaimus oxyuris (Nematoda: Oncholaimidae)

The reproductive potential of O. oxyuris is much lower than would be predicted from body size; this and the dominance of males in the population, is discussed in the light of the evolution of stable predator-prey systems.

An ecophysiological study of some meiofauna species inhabiting a sandy beach at Bermuda

The dominant nematode and harpacticoid species inhabiting a sheltered beach at Bermuda were characterized by their vertical distribution in the sediment, by their tolerance of high temperature under

Effect of temperature on life cycles of nematodes associated with the mangrove (Rhizophora mangle) detrital system

The effect of temperature on the life history of various representatives of the meiofauna associated with decaying mangrove leaves was investigated, and the ability to complete a life cycle was inconsistent within the temperature range of 33° to 35°C.
