Abstract
    In this chapter, a general overview of the physical and biological features of sandy shores, i.e. beaches, is given with a focus on the specific habitat of this PhD thesis, namely the Belgian beaches. Its ecosystem components, food web structure and threats are discussed with a prime focus on coastal defence activities and their impact on the beach ecosystem. At the end of this chapter, the current status of the governance and policy in the Belgian coastal zone is documented to provide for a better understanding of beach and coastal spatial planning in Belgium. Finally, the aims of this PhD thesis and the thesis outline are presented.
