Abstracts : The Wadden Sea is of paramount importance to wildlife. It is a breeding, wintering and refueling station for millions of birds, and an important nursery area for several species of fish. For their survival, growth and reproduction they almost entirely depend on macrozoobenthos (all benthic organisms > 1mm) as their major source of food. To understand the functioning of the Wadden Sea ecosystem, monitoring and understanding the distribution and population dynamics of macrozoobenthos is essential.
