Benthic occurrences, habitat maps, and species traits
Tom J. Webb (2021) Benthic occurrences, habitat maps, and species traits. Integrated data products created under the European Marine Observation Data Network (EMODnet) Biology project (EASME/EMFF/2017/, funded by the by the European Union under Regulation (EU) No 508/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

This data product links occurrences of benthic invertebrates from the EMODnet benthic numerical abundance product to two complementary seabed habitat products: the EMODnet broadscale habitat map 2019 (Vasquez et al., 2020), and Wilson et al.'s (2018) synthetic map of the north-west European Shelf sedimentary environment. We also process and incorporate qualitative information on the habitat and sediment preferences of species from the Biological Traits Information Catalogue BIOTIC database.
