Strossmayer University, Trg Ljudevita Gaja 6, 31 000 Osijek, Croatia Received: 15 June 2009; revised: 2 August 2009 Accepted for publication: 10 August 2009 Summary – The structural and functional diversity of epiphytic nematodes associated with the submerged macrophyte species, Ceratophyllum demersum , were investigated from July to September 2004 at three stations in the floodplain lake, Lake Sakadaš, Croatia. At stations I and II, C. demersum was dominant in the macrophyte patches. At station III, Myriophyllum spicatum was the dominant macrophyte species. When analysis of nematode species composition was done by grouping species with decreasing abundance, a community structure was evident on macrophytes that grew in different parts of the lake. When the abundance of nematodes was taken into account, C. demersum , which grew in different parts of the lake, was not associated with a unique nematode functional structure, and different trophic groups of nematodes were dominant at different stations.
