    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.

  • Categories  

    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.

    Data were collected as part of a PhD study. It aimed - amongst others - at contributing to the rare studies on nematofaunal zonation patterns by collecting samples on a Belgian macrotidal, ultra-dissipative sandy beach.

    Comprehensive picture of total benthic fauna on the Kwintebank in September 1978. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Willems, K.A.; Vanosmael, C.; Claeys, D.; Vincx, M.; Heip, C.H.R. (1981). Macro- and meiobenthos of a sublittoral sandbank in the Southern Bight of the North Sea. Benthos 81/04.

    Density and biomass of meiofauna for 6 sandy beaches (Knokke, Mariakerke, Oostende, Heist, Bredene, Zwin) along the Belgian coast sampled between April 1985 and May 1986. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Jouk, P. (1992). Studie naar de ecologie van de vrijlevende Plathelminthes (Turbellaria) van de zandstranden van de Belgische kust. PhD Thesis. Limburgs Universitair Centrum: Diepenbeek. 2 volumes pp.

    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>

    In the framework of the OMEX-programme (Ocean Margin Exchange, CEC-MAST II), data were collected on the metazoan meiobenthos along the continental slope of the Goban Spur.
