Nematode and harpacticoid copepod species abundance data are listed as counts per sample. Other available data include sediment granulometry and trace metal concentrations. For a detailed description, see listed publications more

Meiobenthos was sampled and environmental variables were measured at a number of stations around the UK coast to improve the understanding of how species assemblages respond to both anthropogenic impacts and natural environmental factors.
