Description
Dataset on meiobenthos densities and biomass of nematode genera for 2 stations (North Sea and Westerschelde) sampled on 22June 1993 and 31March 1994. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Tuhumury, S.F. (1995). Vertical distribution of meiofauna related to biogeochemistry: a case study from one station in the North Sea and one station in the Westerschelde estuary. MSc Thesis. RUG: Gent. 102 pp. more

A case study, from a station along the Belgian coast (790) and a station in the Westerschelde (WO22), in which the vertical destribution of meiobenthos has been studied. Emphasis has been made on the specific distribution of the nematodes genera. Samples were taken in a period with high organic input and a period with low organic input.
