Soft-bottom macrozoobenthos from the coastal Bulgarian Black Sea (2013-2014)
Klayn S, Karamfilov V (2021): Soft-bottom macrozoobenthos from the coastal Bulgarian Black Sea (2013-2014). v1. Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IBER-BAS). Dataset/Samplingevent.

Availability: CC0 To the extent possible under law, the person who associated CC0 with this dataset has waived all copyright and related or neighboring rights to this dataset.

Abundance (individuals/m2) and biomass (g/m2) of macrozoobenthic taxa at soft-bottom stations along the Southern Bulgarian Black Sea coast (Burgas Bay), collected during field surveys of IBER-BAS in 2013-2014 as part of project PERSEUS. The dataset also contains measurements of several environmental parameters at the stations: sediment grain size (% gravel, sand, and silt/clay); sediment moisture content (%) and total organic matter (% loss on ignition); temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen in the water column and near the bottom. more

PERSEUS is a research project that assesses the dual impact of human activity and natural pressures on the Mediterranean and Black Seas. PERSEUS merges natural and socio-economic sciences to predict the long-term effects of these pressures on marine ecosystems. The project aims to design an effective and innovative research governance framework, which will provide the basis for policymakers to turn back the tide on marine life degradation.
