Sightings (snap shots) of marine mammals collected by Biosphere Expeditions collaborators specifically for POPA. Since 2004 Biosphere Expeditions (www.biosphere-expeditions.org) collects data for POPA in the Azores central group in April and May.
The dataset contains sampling of red king crab for a long period. The data has been sampled with trawl and traps, and the sampling has been conducted mostly during the autumn.
Phytoplankton monitoring in the South Adriatic (Adricosm-STAR project), 2008-2009. Discrete water samples are taken at multiple depth layers. The samples were fixed with Ca(HCO3)2-buffered formaldehyde (0.8% final concentration) and cell abundance and species composition of phytoplankton were estimated according to Utermöhl’s method (1958), using an inverted microscope equipped with phase contrast, at 200-320-400x final magnifications.
A comprehensive database of proxy-data on climatic and hydrographic changes in the Mediterranean area/basin through geologic time.
Phytoplankton data collected within the ALPEADRIA monitoring project in the Gulf of Trieste, North Adriatic Sea from 1990 to 1993.
The Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ) started kom fishing near Texel in the Netherlands in 1959. The main benefits were the insight in the occurrence and the abundance of the various species, the collection of undamaged live fish for experiments at both the Zoological Station and the various universities and the provision of food for the experiments with seals at the Texels Museum (nowadays Ecomare).
An annotated check-list is given of Xenophyophores species occurring deeper than 2000 m in the seas bordering Europe.
Data of mesozooplankton are collecting continuously at least twice a year in the northeastern Black Sea from 1994 to present time. Currently, only data until 2005 will be made available.
Micropaleontology, stratigraphy and geochemistry data primarily from the period 18,000 years bp to the present.
List of Typhloplanoida with type localities found in Zanzibar, Kenya, Kerguelen, Australia and the Weddell sea between 1985 and 1997. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Vermin, W. (1998). Typhloplanoida (Turbellaria, Plathelminthes) van het zuidelijk halfrond. BSc Thesis.
