The macrobenthos of the north sea
Abstract The potential threat to the North Sea ecosystem due to pollution by organic and chemical wastes, has directed attention to the benthic assemblages in the sea. Because these assemblagesExpand
The functioning of the ecosystem of the Banc d’Arguin, Mauritania: a review
The Banc d’Arguin, Mauritania, is an area of over 10000 km2 of shallow water and tidal flats between the Sahara and the upwelling system off the Mauritanian coast. The results of theExpand
Trends in biomass, density and diversity of North Sea macrofauna
Total biomass and biomass of large taxonomic groups (polychaetes, molluscs, crustaceans, echinoderms) and species diversity of the macrofauna were determined for almost 200 North Sea stations sampledExpand
The role of the benthic biota in sedimentary metabolism and sediment-water exchange processes in the Goban Spur area (NE Atlantic)
We provide an overview of the role of biological processes in the Benthic boundary layer (BBL) and in sediments on the cycling of particulate organic material in the Goban Spur area (NortheastExpand
The benthic infauna of the North Sea: species distribution and assemblages
Assemblages were further separated by the 30,50 m and 100 m depth contour as well as by thesediment type. In addition to widely distributed species, cold water speciesdo not occur further south thanExpand
Patterns of benthic fauna and benthic respiration on the celtic continental margin in relation to the distribution of phytodetritus
In-situ and shipboard measurements of sediment community oxygen consumption (SCOC), in conjunction with a study of the distributions of macro and megafauna and phytopigments, were used to determineExpand
The functioning of the ecosystem of the Banc d'Arguin, Mauritania: a review
The Banc d'Arguin, Mauritania, is an area of over 10 000 km2 of shallow water and tidal flats between the Sahara and the upwelling system off the Mauritanian coast. The results of theExpand
Distribution of juvenile and adult arenicola marina on a tidal mud flat and the importance of nearshore areas for recruitment
Abstract The spatial and numerical distribution of juvenile and adult lugworm populations on an intertidal mud flat in the western Wadden Sea is described. Density of juveniles and adults appeared toExpand
