The hypothesis that, temporal variation in nematode abundance, community composition and trophic structure is coupled with changes in the quantity and quality of their potential food sources was tested. more

Different variables were investigated over an annual cycle in a Posidonia oceanica seagrass bed (NW Mediterranean Sea).
