The biodiversity and community assemblages of seagrass and sand habitats located in shallow water habitats of the Banc d’Arguin were sampled with a beach seine at 3 sites, during two sampling missions in December and April. The objectives were to test if the community assemblages in term of abundance, species diversity and assemblage structure were different between habitats, as well as the effect of the season and the site.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 176 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
