Fal nematode and copepode abundance and environmental data; samples from November and March, from 5 creeks (Restronguet, Mylor, Pill, St Just, Percuil) more
The Fal estuary system presented an ideal site for a natural experiment on the effects of long-term contamination by heavy metals on the meiofaunal communities of an intertidal mudflat, and the short-term effects of a spill of minewaters.
