Taxonomy database of the Western and Sea Scheldt from the of the Netherlands Institute of Ecology; Centre for Estuarine and Marine Ecology; Department of Ecosystem Studies
Data on biotic parameters of harpacticoid copepods and abiotic parameters related to pollution for samples taken between 1976 and 1980 in the Westerschelde-and Eems-Dollard estuary. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Van Damme, D.; Heip, C.H.R.; Herman, R.; Vaeremans, M. (1981). Harpacticoid copepod community structure in two North Sea estuaries in relation to pollution. Benthos 81/06. Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Laboratorium voor Morfologie en Systematiek der Dieren, Sectie Mariene Biologie: Gent. 58 pp.
Density, biomass, population structure and brood size were determined for Mysid shrimp populations in the Scheldt-estuary.
Data on the ecology of the hyperbenthos community of the Scheldt estuary were derived from research projects on this matter (1988-2001).
Water, sediment, suspended matter and biota were sampled along the Western Scheldt from 2002 to 2006. All matrices were analysed for PAK's, Organotin, PCB's, PBDE's and OCl pesticides using GCMS and GCMS/MS.
