AbstractThe Yellow Sea Cold Water Mass (YSCWM) is a seasonal hydrological phenomenon with significant effects on benthic animals. Based on a range of biological traits, including feeding type, tail shape, adult body length, body shape and life history (c-p value), the biological trait analysis (BTA) of marine nematodes in the southern Yellow Sea was studied in June 2003 (summer) and January 2004 (winter) in order to reveal the effects of YSCWM on benthic animals. In terms of biological traits composition of marine nematode assemblages, results of ANOSIM showed that there were no significant differences among sites inside the YSCMW area. However, for spatial distribution, marine nematode assemblages showed significant differences between sites inside and outside of the YSCWM area in terms of body shape, as there was higher percentage of nematodes with slender body shape while lower percentage with stout and long thin body shape at the sites inside the YSCWM area. Results of BIOENV analysis showed that water depth and sediment silt-clay percentage were the most important factors contributed to the differences of biological traits of marine nematode assemblages in summer, while sediment phaeophorbide content best explained the differences of marine nematode assemblages in winter. The existence of the YSCWM may provide a stable environment for marine nematode assemblages, keeping them in a continuous state during the seasonal changes. The higher percentage of nematodes with slender body may be the response to the YSCWM.
