Abundance (individuals/m2) and biomass (g/m2) of macrozoobenthic taxa from seagrass meadows along the Southern Bulgarian Black Sea coast (Burgas Bay), collected during field surveys of IBER-BAS in 2013-2014 as part of project PERSEUS. Due to the sampling method (hand corer), the dataset represents the infauna associated with the seagrasses. The dataset also contains measurements of several environmental parameters at the stations: sediment grain size (% gravel, sand, and silt/clay); sediment moisture content (%) and total organic matter (% loss on ignition); temperature and salinity of the water.
Abundance (individuals/m2) of macrozoobenthic taxa at littoral/upper infralittoral soft-bottom stations in the Natura 2000 MPA "Ropotamo" (BG0001001), southern Bulgarian Black Sea. The data were collected during field surveys of IBER-BAS in 2013 as part of project COCONET. The dataset also contains a visual description of sediment type at the stations, and a habitat type classification to EUNIS L3.
