Abstract

Next to the geophysical conditions of a coastal zone, the geochemistry of sediments is a very important aspect of the environment of tidal flats. Most of the chemical processes within these sediments are mediated by microorganisms, and their working conditions are, in turn, considerably modified by the large burrowing fauna.
