Abstract
    A strategy is presented for analysing marine biological survey data and relating the biotic patterns to environmental data. To avoid circular argument, biotic and environmental data are kept separate. The strategy is illustrated by a worked example using data on the distribution of 182 nematode species in 107 samples in the River Exe estuary.
