Summary
Abstract: Meiobenthos of subtidal sandbanks on the Belgian Continental Shelf This dataset is a result of sampling meiobenthos and sediment from all sandbanks on the BCS during 1997 and 1998. Nematodes for 4 sandbanks were identified to species level and biomass was measured. The goal is to identify the granulometric variables structuring meiobenthic and nematode communities. To develop monitoring tools using nematodes.
