Data were collected in the framework of the Joint European Estuaries Programme (MAST CEC project, JEEP92) of the EEC, which aims at understanding major biological processes in the European tidal estuaries. more

A baseline study was carried out on the meiobenthos of five European estuaries, with a focus on the nematode species composition.
