Parameters

Zooplankton and zoobenthos morphological parameters; Zooplankton wet weight biomass; Zooplankton growth rates; Zooplankton dry weight biomass per unit volume of the water column; Zooplankton carbon biomass per unit area of the water column; Zooplankton taxonomy-related abundance per unit volume of the water column; Zooplankton biovolume; Zooplankton and zoobenthos development stage parameters; Zooplankton egg hatch proportion

Description 
Summary

Present dataset includes results of analysis of more than 210 zooplankton samples taken on 4 stations in and off the Sevastopol Bay in the Black Sea in 1976, 1979-1980, 1989-1990, 1995-1996 and 2002-2003. Organisms were identified to the lowest taxon possible and enumerated under a binocular microscope (MBS-1 or MBS-9) in Bogorov chambers. Not less than two replicates from each sample were processed and these replicates were averaged. The large size organisms were counted in the whole sample or subsample.
