Description
Meiobenthos of subtidal sandbanks on the Belgian Continental Shelf (counts, nematode species information, nematode biomass information) more

This database contains meiobenthic data collected on several subtidal sandbanks on the Belgian Continental Shelf during several sampling campaings from 1978 until 2004. Taxon densities, nematode species densities and nematode biomass information per station is linked with the available sedimentological variables, if available.
