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.
