Description
Density and biomass of most important macrobenthos taxa and families and nematoda genera for monthly samples of the upper layer of a Ceriops tagal sediment at Gazi Bay. Additionally sediment granulometry and abiotic parameters were measured. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Pratiwi, R. (1995). Community structure and seasonal fluctuation of macrobenthos of Ceriops tagal mangrove sediments at Gazi Bay, Kenya. MSc Thesis. Universiteit Gent - Faculteit Wetenschappen, Vakgroep Biologie: Gent. 106 pp. more

Samples of the upper layer (0-2 cm) were taken using a stack tube of 12.5 cm diameter on a monthly basis. A broad range of abiotic factors (% mud, % sand, % coarse sand, POM, total carbon, pH, salinity, redox, DO, temperature, Chla and fucoxanthine) were measured.
