Description
This is a historical dataset that was published in 1938 by A. Steuer and concerns of the faunistic report on the Cumacea, Stomatopoda and Leptostracacollected during the floristical and faunistical survey of himshelf on the coasts near Alexandria mainly with the vessel “El Hoot”. more

This dataset covers the time span of 15/5/1933 to 13/11/1933 and contains occurrence data of Cumacea, Stomatopoda and Leptostraca in the coasts of Alexandria, Egypt. Besides occurence data, this dataset contains individual counts, sex, lifestage and body length. The digitization of this dataset was done by LifewatchGreece team.

12 stations were sampled, 2 of them were planktonic stations.

This dataset is only a part from a large faunistical expedition (http://ipt.medobis.eu/resource?r=egyptexpeditionpreliminaryrepor) that took place in the coasts near Alexandria. The samples were collected by A. Steuer. For bottom samples almost exclusively a dredge with 20x70 cm opening was used. A single catch was made in a depth of 20 m with a large otter trawl in the eastern part of the Bay of Abukir. For plankton samples, vertical hauls were made using medium sized nets with buckets of celluloids with gauze bottom. In general, the motor-launch of the Marine Laboratory "El Hoot" was used for dredging and a rowing boat in shallow water. All excursions were one-day trips. After the expedition, taxonomic identification of the samples was done by specialists. The results of this expedition were published in separate for each taxonomic group volumes. Thus, sampling methods were described in a preliminary report by A. Steuer.
