Availability: Restricted
The data are withheld from general circulation and disclosure but access may be obtained on a case-by-case basis through negotiation

Notes: Restrictions available at contact person

Description
These data are collected within the framework of different projects. They all have however the same aim: studying the factors determining the distribution of macrobenthic invertebrates in relation to the abiotic environment more

Other aims are assessing the potential impact of environmental changes; development of statistical tools to predict the occurrence of macrobenthos. Geographical area : several sites scattered over the Schelde estuary, including the polyhaline, mesohaline, oligohaline and freshwater tidal zone of the estuary (both subtidal and intertidal) Parameters : Abundance, biomass and population structure/dynamics of macrobenthic species and a characterisation of the abiotic environment (depth, sediment characteristics, salinity, etc.; at some locations also concentrations of pollutants)
