Data on the species and trophic composition of the nematode community in coral degradation zones in Kenya and Zanzibar. more

Coral degradation zones (CDZ) in Kenya and Zanzibar were sampled in order to contribute to the knowledge of the nematode assemblages in these areas of the Indian Ocean. They investigated- amongst others - if these CDZs harbour a typical nematode community (on genus level).
