image of Reference conditions and EQOs for aquatic vegetation and macrozoobenthos

Development of a methodological approach to define and characterise type areas of selected elements of the ecosystems in the open parts of the Skagerrak and Kattegat. The selected elements are aquatic vegetation on hard substrate and macrozoobenthos. Furthermore, the project will develop quantitative ecological relationships and empirical models that describe the relationship between anthropogenic pressures and biological elements.

Macrozoobenthos

Macrozoobenthos is one quality element in the WFD and the metrics to be used to indicate the quality are based on species abundances, species diversity and proportion of sensitive species. In this study we focus on the first mentioned, species abundances, which determines the species composition.
