Marine Biology Section, Department of Biology, Ghent University
Data Center Description
The Marine Biology Section of the Department of Biology of the Ghent University has been involved in ecological and systematic research of marine ecosystems from 1970 onwards. The research started with the investigation of North Sea benthic communities, with special focus on the macro- and meiobenthos. From 1980 onwards, research was expanded to include the hyperbenthic and epibenthic compartments. Research on all benthic comparments is still going on in the North Sea and adjacent estuaries (DWTC, FWO, IWT and RUG- programmes).
