Abstract
    The occurrence of nematode species, orders, feeding-types and species assemblages and associations and their distribution at different scales over the Ems estuary, are investigated and compared with other northwest European estuaries. The formation of species assemblages and associations is discussed in relation to feeding habits and biotope characteristics. Two main faunas were distinguished: one in the Wadden Sea, the other in the Dollart, both extending into the middle reaches of the estuary. It is concluded that faunal associations from the lower sediment layers originate from marine subtidal locations, whereas the associations from the upper sediment layers of tidal flats are specific to estuarine tidal conditions.
