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

The spatio-temporal distribution of the hyperbenthos communities of the North Sea as well as the regulating factors shaping these communities were studied. This was approached by examining species composition, density, biomass and diversity of the hyperbenthos within well-chosen areas of the North Sea.
