Benthos monitoring data from the North Sea between 1990 and 2002. The database was compiled from different sources, mainly under the “Biodiversity and Global Change” (BIGC) programme of the “Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research” (NWO).
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 29,691 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
