Description
Comprehensive picture of total benthic fauna on the Kwintebank in September 1978. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Willems, K.A.; Vanosmael, C.; Claeys, D.; Vincx, M.; Heip, C.H.R. (1981). Macro- and meiobenthos of a sublittoral sandbank in the Southern Bight of the North Sea. Benthos 81/04. Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Laboratorium voor Morfologie en Systematiek der Dieren, Sectie Mariene Biologie: Gent. 27 + annexes pp. more

The benthic fauna of a lineair sandbank (Kwintebank) in the Belgian coastal waters has been sampled on ten stations during a one day sampling (05/09/1978). Species composition, density and relative abundances of the macro-and meiofauna have been studied.
