The role of dominant macrobenthic communities for the material budget of the Sylt-Rømø tidal basin was investigated in the course of the SWAP project by measuringin situ flux rates with the flume technique. Mussel beds, seagrass beds andArenicola flats were found to be sinks for particles, whereas sandy shoals and elevated sands, poor in macrofauna, acted as sources for particles. Dissolved inorganic nitrogen was released by communities which were dominated by macrozoobenthos. Seagrass beds… CONTINUE READING
