Description
Qualitative and quantitative study of sampled macrobenthos for 13 stations in the Western Scheldt and the Belgian Coast in 1976. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Vanosmael, C. (1977). Studie van het macrobenthos ter hoogte van de monding van de Westerschelde en de Belgische kust. MSc Thesis. Rijksuniversiteit Gent, Faculteit der Wetenschappen: Gent. 70 pp. more

A total of 40 Van Veen samples were taken on 13 stations (3 or 4 replica's per station) between 17 June and 29 September 1976. An extra 3 samples from station 00050 (30-06-1972) were provided by Govaere J. and added to this study. Species list with presence and absence records is given per station. Macrobenthos species were counted and mean density and biomass were calculated per taxon and per station.

Scope
Themes:
Biology > Benthos, Biology > Benthos > Macrobenthos, Biology > Ecology - biodiversity, Coastal studies (e.g. shores, estuaries)
