Comparative study of the organismic assemblages associated with the demosponge Sarcotragus foetidus Schmidt, 1862 in the coasts of Cyprus and Greece

Latest version published by Hellenic Center for Marine Research on Oct 24, 2018 Hellenic Center for Marine Research

This dataset includes species found in the demosponge Sarcotragus foetidus. The sponges were collected form two stations, in depths between 5 and 17 meters. The stations were located in Linaraki (Sithonia, Halkidiki, Greece) and in Milourgia (Kissonerga, Pafos, Cyprus). Sampling in Cyprus was conducted in January of 2003 and August of 2003 and 2007, in depths between 5 and 10 meters. Sampling in Greece was conducted in February and July of 2003, in depths between 14 and 17 meters.

Sampling Methods

Samples were collected by scuba divers. Each sponge was covered with a plastic bag and was detached from the substrate with a knife. Once ashore, in every sample formalin was added to final concentration 5% and the samples were stored in larger boxes.

Study Extent Samples were collected from one location at the coast of Cyprus and one location at the coast of Chalkidiki (Greece). Samples were collected at single time points.

Method step description:

  1. Species were counted and sponge's volume and surface were measured.
