    This dataset contains a list of harpacticoid copepods present in samples taken in Gazi Bay (Kenya) and Zanzibar (Tanzania) during July-August 1996. Samples were taken by snorkeling and a PVC meiofauna core. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Geerinckx, T. (2002). The role of isolation and dispersal in explaining regional diversity patterns: a case-study with harpacticoid copepods in tropical seagrass beds. MSc Thesis. MareLac: Ghent. 35 pp.

    Data were collected in the framework of a thesis study. The general aim was to give a detailed inventory of the nematode communities present in the Westerschelde area, based on biomass, diversity and physico-chemical characteristics of the sediment.

    The general aim of this dataset was to describe and investigate the biodiversity and zonation patterns of nematodes in relation to several abiotic factors.

    Inventory of Turbellaria species and examination of the share of Turbellaria in the meiofauna of the Zwin. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Revis, N. (1984). Studie van de Turbellaria in een slikke van het Zwin. BSc Thesis. Free University of Brussels: Faculty of Science: Brussel. A total of 29 samples were collected and divided over six sampling locations (Zwin1-Zwin6) between 14 September 1983 and 09 March 1984. The Turbellaria define 1 to 39% of the meiofauna. In total there were 47 species (without Acoela, except <i>P. rubra</i>) found in the Zwin, from which 43 were determined to species level. From those, there is one new for science: <i>Archilopsis arenaria.</i>

    The hypothesis that, temporal variation in nematode abundance, community composition and trophic structure is coupled with changes in the quantity and quality of their potential food sources was tested.

    The general aim of this dataset was to investigate aspects of the practical potential of nematodes as pollution monitoring organisms. To this end, six stations with different scales of contamination were sampled for nematodes and compared.
