Table 11 Pairwise comparison of diversity indices of the nematode species assemblages in each sediment layer (0–1, 1–2, and 2–3 cm)

From: Nematode assemblages from the Kandalaksha Depression (White Sea, 251–288 m water depth)

Diversity indices Pairwise comparison of sediment layers
0–1 versus 1–2 cm 0–1 versus 2–3 cm 1–2 versus 2–3 cm
d 0.830 0.043* 0.011*
J′ 0.284 0.043* 0.219
ES(31) 0.721 0.043* 0.047*
H′ 0.830 0.043* 0.030*
  1. Significance levels are results of Kruskal–Wallis tests
  2. * Difference is statistically significant at p < 0.05
