Description
This dataset provides information on the meiofaunal communities from two different mud volcanoes (Amsterdam and Napoli) in the eastern Mediterranean. The data describe the meiobenthic communities from different microhabitats in terms of abundance, biomass and species diversity with a special focus on nematodes. The samples have been collected during the EU project HERMES (Hotspot Ecosystem Research on the Margins of European Seas) on board the R/V ‘Pourquoi pas ?’ (MEDECO cruise, Nov 2007) and their analysis has been completed during the EU project HERMIONE (Hotspot Ecosystem Research and Man's Impact On European Seas).
