Description
In march-december 2005 a field experiment was conducted by the project partners (NIOO-CEME and Ghent University) in which extreme changes in the benthic community were related to changes in sedimentary characteristics

Biology, Biology > Benthos, Coastal studies (e.g. shores, estuaries)
Keywords:
Brackish water, Benthos, Ecosystem functioning, Sediments, ANE, Netherlands, Westerschelde, Vaarwater langs Paulina Polder, ANE, Scheldt Estuary, Annelida, Arthropoda, Bacillariophyceae, Mollusca
