Reefs, sand and reef-like sand: A comparison of the benthic biodiversity of habitats in the Dutch Borkum Reef Grounds
Abstract Reefs play an important role in the distribution of species associated with hard substrates and are of value for biodiversity conservation. High densities of the habitat building annelidExpand
Benthic biodiversity on old platforms, young wind farms, and rocky reefs
The introduction of artificial hard substrates in an area dominated by a sandy seabed increases habitat available to epifouling organisms. To investigate this, samples were taken on old offshoreExpand

Species delimitation and DNA barcoding of Atlantic Ensis (Bivalvia, Pharidae)
This work studied whether the currently accepted Atlantic Ensis morphospecies are different evolutionary lineages, to clarify their taxonomic status and enable molecular identifications through DNA barcoding, and suggests COI as the most suitable DNA barcode forAtlantic Ensis. Expand
