    The spatial community structure of the hyperbenthos of Gazi bay was investigated during one week in October 1994. 38 stations were sampled using a hyperbenthic sledge. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Luhunga, B.Y. (1997). Spatial community structure of the hyperbenthos of Gazi Bay, Kenya. MSc Thesis. University of Gent, Zoology Institute, Marine Biology Section: Gent. 68 pp.

    Counts of Mysidacea sp. (incl. sex and life stage) sampled at night in Gazi Bay and the West creek during October 1994. 10 night samples were taken using a hyperbenthic sledge trawled by a boat at 25 HP for 10 min (200m). The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Cattaert, S. (1997). Mysidacea van Gazi Bay, Kenya (staalnamecampagne Oktober 1994, nachtstalen); Mysidacea of Gazi Bay, Kenya (field work campagne of 1994, night samples). Thesis. Universiteit Gent: Gent. 19 pp.

    Density and biomass of hyperbenthos, macrobenthos and zooplankton over a 26 h (14-10-1996) cycle in a subtidal station located in the 'Vlakte van de Raan'. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Mortier, S. (1998). Tidale en diurnale ritmes van het hyperbenthos in het subtidaal van de Belgische oostkust. BSc Thesis. Universiteit Gent.

    The spatio-temporal distribution of the hyperbenthos communities of the North Sea as well as the regulating factors shaping these communities were studied.

    The structural biodiversity of the hyperbenthos of subtidal sandbanks on the BCS is studied. Furthermore, ecological indicator species are determined which can be usefull parameters for policy makers.

    Density and length-frequency data from <i>Mesopodopsis slabberi</i> sampled between May 1990 and December 1991 for 14 stations in the Western Scheldt.

    What ecological effects does a foreshore suppletion, and a beach suppletion, have on the marine ecosystem in the intertidal and shallow surf zone (<6 m depth)? The foreshore suppletion (400.000m³) was by means of an experimental set-up in the shallow coastal zone (-1 to -2m TAW) of Mariakerke. Beside it, a beach nourishment was conducted at Mariakerke (681243m³) and Middelkerke (968754m³). For the Mariakerke area, we collect biological and sedimentological samples in the impact area and in a control area (Bredene), before as after the suppletion, whereas for Middelkerke only the data after suppletion was part of the study. We monitor the marine ecosystem with a focus on the fauna within the sediment (macrofauna) and on the sediment (hyperbenthos, epi- and demersal fish fauna) in the intertidal zone and subtidal zone. In both studies, the subtidal area is the zone between the low water line and the 6m depth line and the intertdial area is the zone between low and high tide water line.

    This is the first study on the epi- and hyperbenthic fauna of the surf zone of sandy beaches of the Belgian coast. Therefore, as a first objective of this thesis, a lot of attention has been paid to the inventarisation (species composition), and to the investigation of the temporal and spatial distribution patterns of both communities. A temporal and a spatial campaign were performed during which the hyper- and epibenthos was sampled.

    The hyperbenthic community of subtidal sandbanks is described (density, species composition) and related to abiotic variables in order to get an idea about the habitats and the biota of the sandbanks.
