Description
Dataset contains the counts and abundance of epiphytic meiofauna (and in particular nematods) on seagrasses sampled at two sites along the Kenyan Coast (Nyali Beach and Gazi Bay) in August 1989. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Van Avermaet, P. (1990). Bijdrage tot de kennis van de ecologie van epifytische meiofauna in Keniase kustbiotopen; Contribution to the knowledge of the ecology of epiphytic meiofauna in Kenyan coast habitats. BSc Thesis. University of Gent, Zoology Institute, Marine Biology Section: Gent. 67 pp.
