Benthic diversity and ecosystem functioning: experiments February 2007/2008 - Westbanks [Benthische diversiteit en ecosysteemfunctie: experimenten Februari 2007/2008 - Westbanks]
Braekman U., Vincx M., Soetaert K. 2008: Benthic diversity and ecosystem functioning: experiments February 2007/2008 - Westbanks. Marine Biology Section, Ugent, Belgium; SSD - Belgian Science Policy, Belgium; Centre for Estuarine and Marine Ecology, NIOO, Netherlands .

Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Microcosm experiments were carried out to test for the relationship between macrofaunal species diversity and density on ecoystem functioning. This database contains the results of the experiments.
