Description
Overview of most abundant benthic species and their related densities in the Sluice Dock between 1976 and 1981. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Thielemans, L.K.H.; Heip, C.H.R.; Van Gansbeke, D. (1982).

An overview of benthic fauna during the period of 1976-1981 in the Sluice Dock related to all parameters (eutrophication, drainage) which caused changes in the entire ecosystem.
