Abstract: The project aims to study the distribution and dispersal of juvenile loggerheads. The juvenile are < 1 year. They come from a a headstarting program with eggs from a nest found at a beach in Pulpi (Andalusia, Spain). This is the second nest ever found at this region. The nest was found at Palmeras Beach (Pulpi) by a fishermen family and rescued by the NGO Equinac. <br>Te nest was doomed and the eggs were relocated and incubated at the Doñana Biological Station (CSIC). Neonates were raised at the Acuario de Sevilla (Sevilla, Spain) and the CEGMA of Algeciras. Tagging was conducted by researchers from Universitat Politècnica de Valencia-IGIC and University of Valencia.

Frequency, density and biomass of copepoda species for several stations in the Oosterschelde, Grevelingen and the Eems-Dollard sampled between 1976 and 1983. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Willems, K.A. (1989). Verspreiding, ecologie en gemeenschapsstructuur van benthische copepoden in het Delta-gebied en de Eems-Dollard (Nederland). PhD Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Faculteit der Wetenschappen: Gent. 2 vol. (440, 198) pp.
This dataset is the outcome of research done on the benthic system of the Black Sea Shelf. Data on macrobenthos (density and biomass), oxygen flux to the sediment and sediment characteristics are presented.
Original provider: Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara, Tethys Research Institute Dataset credits: Tethys Research Institute Abstract: The giant devil ray <i>Mobula mobular</i>, the only Mediterranean mobulid, is subject to mortality caused by directed and accidental captures in fisheries throughout the region. Whilst the combination of human impacts, limited range and a low reproductive potential is not inconsistent with its endangered listing, there are insufficient data to enable a quantitative assessment of trends. Without this, it is difficult to assess and prioritise threats and develop effective conservation actions.
We gathered taxonomic information regarding the occurrence of rotifers in Antarctica and Subantarctica, producing a dataset of 1,165 records. For each record, it reports the literature reference, the name of the locality with the coordinates, and the type of habitat, if available.
