The free-living nematodes of a temperate, high energy, sandy beach: faunal composition and variation over space and time

Hodda, Michael; Hodda, Mike


Free-living marine nematodes were sampled extensively over a 2-year period on a long sandy beach exposed to high-energy ocean swells in southeastern Australia. Samples were taken in summer and winter at different tide levels on the beach, and at different positions along the beach. A total of 58 species from 48 genera were found, many as yet known only from Australia. Predators and particle feeders were always the most abundant feeding guilds, but species composition varied markedly between...[Show more]
