Sieving Sediment19.09.2016


Within the COST action EMBOS (European Marine Biodiversity Observatory System), the degree and variation of the diversity and densities of soft-bottom communities from the lower intertidal or the shallow subtidal was measured at 28 marine sites along the European coastline (Baltic, Atlantic, Mediterranean) using jointly agreed and harmonized protocols, tools and indicators. 

MER macrofauna expert collected and analysed samples from a coastal site in south Cyprus (Kiti at Larnaca). 


The diversity accross different latitudes was compared and the results are presented here - link
