Description 
Summary

Data on the macrobentic invertebrates of the described ecological groups and of the meiobenthos corresponding to nearly 300 periodic sampling stations distributed along the levantine coastline of the Iberian and Alboran Sea. Data on the location, depth, substrate, inclination, orientation, plant coverage and biocenology are available for each sampling. In the case of benthos of loose substrata we have the interstitial characteristics (texture, sediment and physical and chemical characteristics of interstitial waters, etc.). Updating is done in the course of specific research expeditions without a concrete periodicity.
