Description
Frequency, density and biomass of copepoda species for several stations in the Oosterschelde, Grevelingen and the Eems-Dollard sampled between 1976 and 1983. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Willems, K.A. (1989). Verspreiding, ecologie en gemeenschapsstructuur van benthische copepoden in het Delta-gebied en de Eems-Dollard (Nederland). PhD Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Faculteit der Wetenschappen: Gent. 2 vol. (440, 198) pp. more

List of Copepoda species sampled between 1976 and 1983 for 29 stations in Grevelingen, 40 stations in the Oosterschelde, 19 stations in the Ems-Dollard and the Westerschelde. For each species the following parameters are given: absolute frequency, average density and individual dry weight biomass in µg is calculated.
