Description
This dataset contains a list of harpacticoid copepods present in samples taken in Gazi Bay (Kenya) and Zanzibar (Tanzania) during July-August 1996. Samples were taken by snorkeling and a PVC meiofauna core. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Geerinckx, T. (2002). The role of isolation and dispersal in explaining regional diversity patterns: a case-study with harpacticoid copepods in tropical seagrass beds. MSc Thesis. MareLac: Ghent. 35 pp.
