Table 5 Proportions (averaged over all full cores) of the 10 most abundant genera and their contribution to dissimilarities (%, result of SIMPER test) between the relative abundance of nematode genera from the present study and from a similar depth range in the White Sea Basin (data from Galtsova 1991)

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