Free-living nematodes inhabiting a sandy beach exposed to strong ocean waves were sampled at bimonthly intervals for two years. Six 1.3-litre core samples were taken on each occasion down to a depth of 60 cm. The numbers of each species and their status as juveniles, males and females (with or without eggs) was recorded. In the common species all these stages occur throughout the year, but the population increases in the warmer months of the year and falls to a much lower level in winter. Most… CONTINUE READING
