Description
Stable isotope data of primary producers and macrofauna collected at the locations of the bay of the Mont Saint-Michel and Boulogne-sur-Mer (France) during spring and autumn 2012. more

Data was collected both in the presence and absence of the polychaete Lanice conchilega in order to investigate differences in the food web structure of an intertidal area. Data collected in the framework of the PhD research of Bart De Smet (Marine Biology Research Group, Ghent University)
