Mangrove crabs and their relationship with the environment in mangrove forests of Dabaso and Gazi (Kenya) sampled in 1998 and 1999
Counts of observed mangrove crabs and their relationship with the environment (abiotic data for the location where the crabs were found). The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Gillikin, D. P. (2000). Factors controlling the distribution of Kenyan brachyuran mangrove crabs: salinity tolerance and ecophysiology of two Kenyan Neosarmatium species. MSc Thesis. Vrije Universiteit Brussel (ECOMAMA): Brussel. 152 pp.
Occurrence (presence/absence) of the crabs at Kanamai Beach, Bamburi, Mkomani and the Gazi mangrove forest, and salinity measurements at various seepage points in Gazi, Nyali, Bamburi, Kanamai, Mkomani, Shelly and Tiwi measured during the months of June, July and August 1985. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Polk, P. (Ed.) (1986). Kenya report. VUB: Brussel. 358 pp.
An experimental approach to study epi-and infauna of mangrove forests in Gazi Bay (Kenya) between August 1992 and July 1993
Meiobenthos densities and abiotic parameters measured during a cage experiment in an <i>Avicennia marina</i> and <i>Ceriops tagal</i> forest sampled between August 1992 and July 1993. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Schrijvers, J. (1996). Interactions between epifauna and infauna in a Kenyan mangrove forest: an experimental approach = Interacties tussen epifauna en infauna in een Kenyaans mangrovewoud: een experimentele benadering.
