This is a historical dataset that was publlished in 1935 by H. Broch and concerns of the faunistic report on the Cirripeds collected during the floristical and faunistical survey of Adolf Steuer on the coasts near Alexandria mainly with the vessel “El Hoot”. more

This dataset covers the time span of 30/8/1933 to 14/11/1933 and contains occurrence data of Cirripeds in the coasts of Alexandria, Egypt. The digitization of this dataset was done by LifewatchGreece team.

This dataset constitutes a small part of an expedition that took place in the coast of Alexandria, Egypt at 1933. Therefore, only 14 sampling stations from a total of almost 170 were described in this dataset.

In this dataset, the occurence of 5 cirriped species were described. Apart from Chelonibia patula, the other 4 species belong to Balanus genus.

This dataset is only a part from a large faunistical expedition ( took place in the coasts near Alexandria. The samples were collected by A. Steuer. For bottom samples almost exclusively a dredge with 20x70 cm opening was used. A single catch was made in a depth of 20 m with a large otter trawl in the eastern part of the Bay of Abukir. In general, the motor-launch of the Marine Laboratory "El Hoot" was used for dredging and a rowing boat in shallow water. All excursions were one-day trips. After the expedition, taxonomic identification of the samples was done by specialists. The results of this expedition were published in separate for each taxonomic group volumes. Thus, sampling methods were described in a preliminary report by A. Steuer.
