Study on meiobenthos and nematode communities (counts, density, biomass, genus composition) collected in the Arctic Ocean in August and September 1991. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Jivaluk, J. (1993). Comparative study of the meiobenthos in the Arctic region. MSc Thesis. RUG: Gent. 135 pp.
Study of the species composition of the copepod community at the Southern Bight of the North Sea, in relation to environmental variables.
Soft-bottom macrozoobenthos from the littoral zone of the Natura 2000 MPA "Ropotamo", Southern Bulgarian Black Sea (2013)
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.
Density and relative abundances of meiobenthos (with emphasis on the deep-sea nematod community) sampled at Pointe de la Revellata (Calvi, Corsica) in September 1982. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Soetaert, K.; Heip, C.H.R.; Vincx, M. (1983). Inleidende studie van het meiobenthos van een diepzeetransekt (175m-1605m) te Calvi, Corsica, in: FKFO Project 2.9007.82. Systematiek en ecologie van mariene organismen: verslag over het tweede werkingsjaar 1983. pp. 75-86.
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.
