TROPHOS: Higher trophic levels in the Southern North Sea: Distribution of birds in the Belgian Part of the North Sea (2002-2006)
Stienen, E.; Instituut voor Natuur- en Bosonderzoek: Higher trophic levels in the Southern North Sea: Distribution of birds in the Belgian Part of the North Sea (2002-2006).
Contact: Stienen, Eric ; Belgisch Marien Data Centrum (IRScNB/KBIN-BMDC), more

Availability: The data can be made available upon request, please use contact information.

TROPHOS aims at a better understanding of processes structuring the higher trophic levels in the North Sea. Results will serve in aspects of sustainable management for those areas on the Belgian Continental Shelf (BCS) of the North Sea, which fulfil the criteria for protection status in marine reserves. more
