The dataset contains biotic data from different stations in the Laki lagoon in the Ervos Delta in Southeast Greece. It contains presence/absence data for 15 species at stations in september 1997. more
The macrobenthic fauna in the outer part of the Laki lagoon was characterized by a higher diversity and the occurrence of both lagoonal and marine species, and in the innermost part by a higher total abundance and the occurrence of a few lagoonal species. The combination of distance from the sea, depth, salinity and sediment organic matter correlated best with the spatial distribution pattern of the macrofauna. A number of datarecords are uncertain, and are therefore not included in Eurobis.

Presence of biota: Van Veen type sampling
Samples were taken using a van Veen-type special sampler with handles (Larimore 1970). The surface was 400cm². A sieve with a mesh of 0.5mm was used.
