Description
This dataset contains a list of intertidal diatom species sampled at Gazi Bay (Kenya) in September 1991. Samples were taken from the upper 1 centimeter at each station using a Perspex insert tube (diameter 22mm). Identification of the diatoms was done on light- and electron microscopy. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Van Zele, M. (1992). Intertidale benthische diatomeeën van Gazi Bay (Kenya). Intertidal benthic diatoms of Gazi Bay (Kenya). MSc Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent. Faculteit Wetenschappen: Gent. VOL. 1 (114 P.); VOL. 2 (PL., fig.); vol. 3 (photoalbum pp.
