Description
List of macrobenthos species which were present (counts) or absent (count=0) for several samples taken in 4 permanent quadrants (PQ) on the 'Slikken van Vianen' in September 1979. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Dereu, J. (1982). Ruimtelijke distributie van het macrozoöbenthos op de slikken van Vianen (Oosterschelde, NL). BSc Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent: Gent. 95 pp. more

Study to observe the spatial distribution of the macrobenthos on the 'Slikken van Vianen'. Dataset contains counts of species for permanent quadrants PQ3, PQ5, PQ6 and PQ15 which were sampled 20 or 30 times on the 27th of September 1979 using a tube (176,6 cm^2) that was inserted in the sediment up to 30 cm. Densities of macrobenthos species per PQ are also given.
