Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
This study investigates the seasonal changes of meiofauna taxa and free-living marine nematodes communities associated with sediments of Zostera noltii seagrass beds more

The parameters measured are : densities, genus composition, trophic groups, and population structure. The study was carried out in the Mira estuary (Southwest Cost of Portugal) and was based on high temporal resolution (biweekly samples during fourteen months).
