The Wadden Sea Ecosystem: Stability Properties and by Dr. Sabine Dittmann (auth.), Dr. Sabine Dittmann (eds.)

By Dr. Sabine Dittmann (auth.), Dr. Sabine Dittmann (eds.)

This booklet covers the synthesis of the joint examine undertaking ELA W AT (Elastizitat des Okosystems Wattenmeer = Resilience of the Wadden Sea Ecosystem), which was once a part of the "Ecosystem examine Wadden Sea" in Germany. the main ob­ jective of ELA WAT used to be the research of power balance houses and correct tactics for regeneration during this intertidal atmosphere. The synthesis of this professional­ ject summarizes the result of a number of years of box reviews on spatial and temporal styles of numerous abiotic and biotic parameters and at the results of disturbances. in accordance with this research, balance houses and mechanisms have been pointed out. the implications give a contribution to the security of methods during this coastal atmosphere (Chap. 12). This booklet at the interdisciplinary undertaking ELA W AT additionally offers an in depth case research at the ecology of a backbarrier approach. The "Ecosystem study Wadden Sea" was once a part of the surroundings study software of the Federal Republic of Germany and a contribution to the MAB­ programme of the UNESCO (MAB-5). result of this interdisciplinary study scheme have been intended to shape the medical history of political judgements for the safety and sustainable use of this coastal atmosphere. therefore the "Ecosystem learn Wadden Sea" the ideas of the precautionary precept and environmental examine of the government. The examine was once performed in organization with the administrations of the Wadden Sea nationwide Parks within the states of Schleswig-Holstein and reduce Saxony.
