The nematode/copepod ratio. Some anomalous results from the Firth of Clyde



The nematode/copepod ratio. Some anomalous results from the Firth of Clyde



Marine Pollution Bulletin 15(7): 256-259



An analysis is presented of some intertidal meiofauna assemblages from the Firth of Clyde. The results cast doubt on the validity of the nematode/copepod ratio as a means of assessing marine pollution. In the light of this analysis, data from the literature on the meiofauna assemblages of the Firth of Clyde are reinterpreted.
