This dataset contains macrozoobenthos data from the BfG - Estuary Monitoring Programme. more

The programme was designed and installed by Stefan Nehring in 1995 with the aim to get more data about macrozoobenthos in German North Sea estuaries. It was installed as a long-term monitoring, however, without any statuatory regulation. Since 1995 the data are integrated in the national "Bund Länder Messprogramm (BLMP)".
