Archived data
Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
Qualitative and quantitative composition and temporal variation for the zooplankton community sampled at a fixed station, West-Hinder, between March 1977 and December 1979.The data are digitized from technical reports in the frame of the 4DEMON project. more

Temporal variation in density and biomass of the zooplankton community sampled at station West-Hinder between 31 March 1977 and 31 December 1979. Density and biomass are given for most abundant zooplankton taxa. For each unique eventID individual copepoda species belonging to the orders Calanoida, Cyclopoida or Harpacticoida were identified and their individual density and biomass is noted.
