Clyde meiofauna - transect through Garroch Head disposal site (at Station P), Craib cores: Response of the meiofaunal community to sewage sludge disposal in the Firth of Clyde more
The meiofauna of the Firth of Clyde was sampled to examine changes in community structure along a classical gradient of organic enrichment and to compare the responses of the different meiofaunal groups. Additionally, the data were used to investigate the response patterns as revealed by various community measurements (e.g. abundance and diversity).
