The number of individuals per species of benthic copepods was counted for a station on the Kwintebank and on the Gootebank on the Belgian Continental Shelf. more
This dataet was compiled in the framework of a PhD thesis and concentrates on the temporal fluctuations in the vertical distribution of harpacticoid copepods in the sediment and if this response is different for epi- and endobenthic interstitial copepod species.
