The EDEN project has developed novel methodologies to characterize genetic relationships among biological individuals and species by using network methods. This deliverable consists in a series of data files, accessible via the EDEN web, containing results of analysis of two seagrass species, Posidonia oceanica and Cymodocea nodosa.

 The entry URL for the database is

Details of the methodology used to obtain each file and of the meaning and interpretation of the different concepts (such as Genetic Diversity Spectrum, GDS, percolation thresholds, etc.) are described in deliverables D4.1 (,D4.2 ( and in the references cited there. In fact, the following two references contain enough material to understand all the concepts and files presented here:
