Experimental data - nematode data from microcosms dosed with three levels of contaminants (Cu, Zn, Cd,Pb) plus controls and initial field samples. more

A microcosm experiment was carried out to determine the effect of four heavy metals on offshore meiobenthic nematode communities. Both field and experimental data are available.
