Macrozoobenthos in the surf zone off Puan Klent (Island of Sylt) in June 2010, 4 years after sand replenishment


In June 2010, seven transects across the surf zone off Puan Klent (Island of Sylt) were sampled for macrozoobenthos. Three of these transects had been fed with sand 4 years before, the other four transects (interspaced between the replenished areas) were unchanged and serve as a control. Each transect consisted of 5 sampling sites perpendicular to the coastline. 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).
