Salinity (regime): The range of salinities in which the organism is recorded (scale taken from Reusser & Lee, 2011)
- [[Salinity|Salinity (regime)]]
The definition refers to a scale of salinities (Reusser & Lee, 2011). The traits could be records as a range of values of the scale in which the organism is found, or as the max. to minimum values in which the organism is recorded. Note the scale is expressed as 'psu' while the TEOS-10 uses g/kg (mass fraction of salt in seawater).
