Quality The animals counts were done according to convention: sorting under a stereo
microscope after sieving and preservations. A 250µm mesh was used for sieving.
Accuracy is unknown. Box cores likely lose some light epifauna during coring
process, but this is the most common deep-sea infauna collection tool used.
Sieve size used: 250 µm. Thickness of sampled sediment layer: top 3 cm (mud
layer above solid clay). Box core area: 0.25 square meters. Very small number
of samples (11 box cores) taken in entire study area (Canada Basin, Northwind
Ridge, coordinates above).
Access Constraints None
Use Constraints Do not redistribute to third parties. When not provided by taxonomist,
taxonomic information was completed using ITIS (e.g. in many cases for ORDER).
