Modelling the Ecosystem of the Ems Estuary

Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 71)


The subject of this book is the modelling of an estuarine ecosystem that is not always completely covered with water: a tidal flat estuary. These tidal flats make it a rather special instance of a marine ecosystem, since this feature exposes large parts of the benthic system to direct sunlight and makes it accessible to non-diving predators, such as waders.
