Description
The necton species composition was investigated along the salinity gradient in the Schelde. Within each of the five sampled marsh habitats, a comparison was made between large intertidal channels, small intertidal channels and tidal ponds.

Scope
Themes:
Biology, Biology > Ecology - biodiversity, Coastal studies (e.g. shores, estuaries)
