Description
Data gathered during BEWREMABI project sampling campaigns more

Data was gathered during BEWREMABI project (part of SPSD-II federal science policy programme) sampling campaigns. Epifauna was scraped from horizontal or vertical quadrates. On board the macrofauna was seperated from the meiofauna and the macrofauna samples were identified to species level. For two cruises the meiofauna was worked out as well (see related dataset http://www.vliz.be/imis/imis.php?module=dataset&dasid=837).
