These data were collected as part of a large study, aiming to compare the structure of the nematode communities at two comparable sublittoral sites, located in the Southern Baltic and the south-eastern part of the North Sea. more

The goal was to increase the understanding of the controlling factors in abundance, diversity and spatial distribution patterns.
