Length/Width and biomass of nematodes from sandbanks on the Belgian Continental Shelf
Vanaverbeke, J. (1998). Length, width and biomass measurements of nematodes from sandbanks on the Belgian Continental Shelf. Ghent University, Department of Biology, Marine Biology Section (MARBIOL), Belgium.

Firstly, one wanted to analyse the response of nematode biomass spectra (NBS) to three distinct stressors upon the sediment habitat and secondly, analysing the NBS in different ways to be able to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various methods more

This dataset was collected in the framework of the PODO-I project: "Structural and functional biodiversity of North Sea ecosystems: species and their habitats as indicators for a sustainable development of the Belgian Continental Shelf".
