    The diversity of nematode communities along the Belgian coast is influenced by the median grain size and the percentage of silt of the sediment, as H = 0.84 +10. 96Md -0.013S. The influence of the outlet of a small stream, the IJzer, is also clearly visible in the low diversity of communities situated to the north-east of the mouth, which is the direction of the prevailing currents. The predominating species in low-diversity communities appear to be generalists, while high specialization seems to be the rule for nematode communities as a whole.
