The dataset contains taxonomic and morphological data of the macroinvertebrates community of a Nationally designated area in South Italy (Brindisi, Apulia). Data refer to 19504 individuals.
This dataset provides broad information on taxonomic and morphological (shape, linear dimensions, biovolume, cell abundance, cell size) structure of phytoplankton communities, in an impacted marine coastal area. The study was conducted in order to understand the role of anthropogenic pollution on phytoplankton community. For this reason, 3 different areas, along a pollution gradient, were considering. Data were collected at different spatial and temporal scales, in marine ecosystems, located in South Adriatic Sea, close to an industrial area and a marine protected area, in Brindisi, along Salento Peninsula (Puglia region, Italy).
