Length and widt data were collected for 4233 nematode individuals. For each genus, the feeding type was determined (when possible). Samples were taken at depths ranging from 160 m to 1220 m, in two replicates. more

The size distribution of nematodes was investigated for samples collected from six stations along a transect in the Mediterranean Sea (Corsica).
