Short summary
Several transitional settings in the western Indian continental margin, including the shelf, slope, and basin, provide multiple oxygen and other environmental gradients. These settings allowed us to investigate how oxygen and environmental factors affect and modulate the structure and function of nematode communities at the species level. An study from the Indian western continental margin with reference to nematode tolerance in the oxygen minimum zone is therefore important.
