Spatial distribution of meiobenthos in the Voordelta (October 1988)

Meiofauna composition and overview of nematoda genera found in Grevelingen and the Oosterschelde area on 17 and 19 October 1988. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Jian, L. (1989). The study in the spatial distribution of meiobenthos in the Voordelta (the Southern Bight of the North Sea). MSc Thesis. VUB: Yerseke. 77 pp. Samples were taken on six stations from two areas (Grevelingen and Oosterschelde area) in the Voordelta (Southern Bight of the North Sea). At each station, three boxes corer (14.7cm diam.) were taken and out of each box corer, three replicate cores (2.4 cm diam.) were randomly taken (total of 54 core samples to be analysed). From each sample, meiofauna composition (densities of the 16 higher taxa encountered) and nematode genera (up to 65 in this study) have been determined.
