Description
Dataset on biotic observations in the context of "Project Sea". The data are digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

The dataset contains information of all biotic parameters (benthos, birds, fish, phytoplankton and zooplankton) that were measured in the framework of "Project Sea" (1970-1976), the first Belgian marine research program in the Belgian Continental Shelf (BCS).

* Unité d'Océanologie et d'Anatomie comparée (ULB)

* Laboratorium voor Ekologie en Systematiek (VUB)

* Laboratorium voor Microbiologie en Hygïene (VUB)

* Laboratoire de Biologie Marine (ULG)

* Laboratoire d'Océanologie (ULB)

* Laboratorium voor Fyto-hydrobiologie / Algologie (KUL)

* Laboratorium voor Morfologie en Systematiek (RUG)

* Rijksstation voor Zeevisserij Oostende (Min. Agr.)

* Koninklijk Belgisch Instituut voor Natuurwetenschappen (RBINS)
