Description
An overview of all plankton species and corresponding environmental parameters measured in the harbour of Ostend in 1965. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: De Pauw, C. (1966). Oekologische studie van het plankton in de haven van Oostende gedurende 1965. MSc Thesis. Universiteit Gent. Faculteit Wetenschappen: Gent. 147, bijlage 54 pp. more

This dataset gives an overview of plankton (phyto-and zooplankton) as well as metazoan and protozoan species sampled at 3 places in the harbour of Ostend. Surface samples using a phytoplanktonnet were taken monthly between January and September 1965. This study mainly focused on the group Crustacea, of which Copepoda are by far the most important group. A number of physico-chemical factors such as salinity, oxygen, pH, temperature were measured.
