Description
The dataset provides a quantitative list of the benthic macrofauna taxa, identified to species level, which was collected from soft sediments in the Prof. Luiz Saldanha Marine Park (Arrábida, SW Portugal) between 2007 and 2009, at depths ranging from 10 to 100 m, aiming at describing community structure and distribution as well as classifying and mapping benthic habitats according to the EUNIS system. more

The dataset provides a quantitative list of the benthic macrofauna taxa, identified to species level, which was collected from soft sediments in the Prof. Luiz Saldanha Marine Park (Arrábida, SW Portugal) between 2007 and 2009, aiming at describing community structure and distribution as well as classifying benthic habitats according to the EUNIS system. The data were obtained in the framework of the research project BIOMARES (LIFE06 NAT/P/000192) - Restoration and Management of Biodiversity in the Marine Park Site Arrábida Espichel (PTCON0010). The samples were collected with a Smith-McIntyre grab in georeferenced sites along the Marine Park during three dedicated sampling surveys carried out in July 2007, 2008 and 2009. In each site three grab samples were collected (two for faunal analysis and one for sediment grain size and organic matter analysis)
