Description
Monitoring of species richness, abundances of all macrobenthic species, biomass, sediment grain size, temperature and salinity more

The experiment was designed to study long-term changes in community structure in response to global change (climatic change) and local anthropogenis pressures (e.g. eutrophication). Fine sand macrobenthic communities are monitored two to five times a year at the "Pierre Noire" site. The different parameters wich are measured are (1) total and specific abundances, (2) specific richness
