PacMARS Dominant Benthic infaunal parameters_dominant fauna (2000-2012)


This dataset contains the composite dominant macrofaunal taxon type by dry weight biomass (gC/m2) to class level at each station for the identified cruises in Table 1 for the period 2000-2012. The associated station abundance, wet weight biomass (gww/m2), carbon dry weight biomass (gC/m2), number of taxa, Shannon-Weaner diversity and evenness indices, and number of grabs collected per station are available in a separate file for the period 1970-2012 (see Companion dataset, below).
