Abstract
    Morphometry and biomass of nematode communities in different harbours of the Saigon River were investigated in the dry and wet seasons in relation to environmental variables such as total organic carbon, pH, conductivity, salinity and oxygen redox potential, in addition to concentrations of different butyltin compounds. The results indicated that nematodes in contaminated sediments from the Saigon River harbours were mainly characterised by slender morphotypes, whilst very few thin and stout nematodes were observed. Individual nematode biomass was generally low, especially in the wet season. There was no significant correlation between butyltin compounds and nematode morphometrics in the dry season but significant correlations were found for the wet season. Although significant correlations were observed for the wet season, the strong seasonal differences in nematode biomass spectra suggest a potential limitation in their use for environmental monitoring.
