Data were collected in the framework of a multidisciplinary project ECOFLAT, which aims to study the ecometabolism of the Molenplaat (SW Netherlands). more

In this dataset, the tidal migration of nematodes was investigated both on species and community level, and it was also tested whether the community level approach masks species specific patterns.
