Seasonal variations in nematode assemblages on an Australian temperate ocean beach: the effect of heavy seas and unusually high tides

Nicholas, Warwick


Free-living nematodes inhabiting a sandy beach exposed to strong ocean waves were sampled at bimonthly intervals for two years. Six 1.3-1itre 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.
