Description
Overview of plankton species found in the peatbanks for 12 sampling days between June and December 1970 and species list for the whole sampling period with their exact locality at the beach of Raversijde. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Jocqué, R.; Van Damme, D. (1971). Inleidende oecologische studie van klei- en turfbanken in de getijdenzone te Raversijde (België). more

The beach of Raversijde shows substrata which are very rich in comparison to the rest of natural substrata along the Belgian coast, consisting exclusively of sandy beaches. From June to December 1970 samples were taken at several places of the beach. The investigation was focused on the peatbanks situated around mean tide level and the claybanks near low tide level. The foulding of those substrata was compared to that of wooden wreck situated near mean tide level.
