The microphytobentos is an important primary producer in estuarine ecosystems. It has never been taken in to account in previous ecological models of this biotope. The purpose of this research is to study these organisms qualitatively as well as quantitavily, to seek their distribution pattern and seasonality as to define their impact on the energy flux in this ecosystem.
