This data product is an R Shiny application that discloses the data collected by the Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (IZOR) in Croatia, in the Middle Adriatic (Skejic et al., 2015). A time series has been built of observations on the species composition of the plankton. The application shows the evolution over time of abundance of major groups of species, as well as the most frequent species (or other taxonomic units) in the dataset. There is also a multivariate representation based on a PCA of abundances of the most frequent species, which shows the seasonal (monthly) fluctuations and the long-term (yearly) trend, and the contribution of each individual species to the temporal evolution of the community.
