Description
The composition and distribution of the macrobenthic amphipod, mollusc and polychaete fauna in the Evros Delta have been investigated. The distribution of species showed a zonation mainly related to the degree of "confinement".

Scope
Themes:
Biology > Benthos, Biology > Ecology - biodiversity, Bottom samples (e.g. core, dredge, grab)
Keywords:
Marine, Brackish water, Terrestrial, Benthos, MED, Greece, Evros Delta, Amphipoda, Molluscs, Polychaeta

Geographical coverage
MED, Greece, Evros Delta [Marine Regions]

Temporal coverage
September 1981

Taxonomic coverage
Amphipoda [WoRMS]
Mollusca [WoRMS]
Polychaeta [WoRMS]

Parameters
Abundance Methodology , Biomass Methodology , Grain size distribution, Organic matter content (OM), Salinity, Temperature in water
Abundance: Modified Van Veen Grab
As described by Kevrekidis, Th. & Koukouras, A. (1988)

The data was sampled using a modified Van Veen Grab with a surface of 400 cm² (20 X 20 cm) which penetrated to a depth of 20 cm. Four replicates were taken at each station of which the average density and biomass were calculated.
