Macrozoobenthos in the surf zone off the Island of Sylt in June 2010


In June 2010, the surf zone off the western beach of Sylt was sampled for macrozoobenthos. One sampling station was arranged per km of beach length (n=37) at a distance of some 100m from the water line. Three replicate box cores (0.02 m² surface area) per site were sieved over 1 mm meshes and all macrozoobenthos retained was sorted to species level and counted.All abundance data are #/0,02 m² (individuals per box core).
