Spatial and seasonal variability of the molluscan macrofauna at the marine-lagoonal environmental gradient at Kalloni saltworks (Lesvos Island, NE Aegean Sea, Greece)

Latest version published by Hellenic Center for Marine Research on Jun 10, 2016 Hellenic Center for Marine Research

A study that focuses on the seasonal community structure of the macrobenthic molluscs at the marine-lagoonal environmental gradient that takes place at Kalloni solar saltworks (Lesvos Island, NE Aegean Sea, Greece). The molluscan community was studied by means of four seasonal samplings carried out in 2004 at four sites located along the marine-lagoonal environmental gradient in the study area. Full citation: Α.

Sampling Methods

Four sampling sites, spread over a total distance of approximately 1 km, were chosen along the course of seawater flow from Kalloni Gulf into the saltworks and termed "gulf", "channel", "pond1" and "pond2", respectively. Sampling was repeated as four seasonal samplings in 2004 (in February – "Winter", May – "Spring", September – "Summer" and November – "Autumn"). Samples for the macrobenthic molluscs analyses (three replicates, 0.1 m2 each, tens of m apart) were collected with a Hydrobios Van Veen grab sampler and were subsequently sieved through a 0.5mm mesh size net. The samples were fixed with 4% formaldehyde and stained with Rose Bengal.

Study Extent Spatial extent: Kalloni saltworks area (Lesvos Island, NE Aegean Sea, Greece): The saltworks' inlet channel, the first two evaporation ponds, the adjacent part of Kalloni Gulf. Sampling frequency: 4 seasonal samplings, in 2004.
