Experimental data - sediment from Fal estuary (field-contaminated with heavy metals) seeded with meiofauna from Lynher estuary in microcosms
This experimental laboratory study assessed the effects of different levels of paint-derived TBT, and different modes of exposure, on estuarine nematodes.
Fal nematode and copepode abundance and environmental data; samples from November and March, from 5 creeks (Restronguet, Mylor, Pill, St Just, Percuil)
Experiment on the short-term effects of beam trawling in the Southern North Sea.
This dataset arises from probably the first study on the effects of TBT on meiobenthic communities. Microcosm experiments were conducted where meiobenthos is concentrated in TBT contaminated and uncontaminated sediments.
Data are the result of a laboratory experiment, designed to investigate the effects of the degree of contamination and the role of burial associated with the deposition of dredged material on meiobenthic nematodes.
The main objective of the data derived from this microcosm experiment was to assess the ability of nematodes to vertically migrate into native muddy and non-native sandy sediment deposited in different amounts and frequencies.
