The distribution ofmacrofauna in and around mussel beds (Mytilus edulis) in an intertidal sandflat was studied in the framework of the ELAWAT Ecosystem Research Program of the Wadden Sea (BERGFELD 1996). The study focused on the impact ofbiodeposition oforganic material (faeces and pseudofaeces) produced by mussel beds on macrofaunal community patterns. Sampling took place on the ,,Swinnplate", a sandflat located in the backbarrier tidal flats of the East Frisian island of Spiekeroog in October… CONTINUE READING
