Abstract: Gammarus wilkitzkii is a presumed omnivorous amphipod that lives in high densities in close association with Arctic pack ice. This dataset consist of 7 rows and 4 species (Apherusa glacialis, Gammarus wilkitzkii, Onisimus nanseni and Onisimus glacialis). The data are derived from a study that tried to illuminate the complexity of food ecology in more detail for G.wilkitzkii and in terms of food ... View entire text

Purpose: Data come from a study that tries to investigate the feeding and digestion habits, preference, mechanisms, localization, and detection of Gammarus wilkitzkii.
