Zoobenthos and sediments time series at List Reede, Sylt, Germany, in 2011


A shallow subtidal area in the northern Wadden Sea was monitored for sediment parameters and macrobenthic fauna using stratified random sampling of a grid of 50 sampling positions. Samples were collected with a Reineck-type box-corer of 0.02 m² surface area. Granulometric sediment composition was analysed from a sub-sample of each box-core using a diffraction laser particle-size analyser. Macrobenthos (sieved through 1 mm square meshes and fixed in buffered formalin solution) was counted, identified to species level, and the size of hard-shelled individuals measured. The amount of shell detritus was quantified as wet-weight in the benthos samples. This dataset contains the results of the five sampling dates in 2011.
