Influence of the bioturbator Corophium volutator on the uptake of diatoms by harpacticoid copepods [Invloed van de bioturbator Corophium volutator op de opname van diatomeeën door harpacticoïde copepoden]

Description
Experiments were performed to study the effect of the bioturbator Corophium vollutator on (1) the diatom uptake by harpacticoid copepods (2) the production of EPS by diatoms (3) sediment stability. This dataset contains the experimental outcome.
