Innovation Scientific research: Macrozoobenthos for habitat integrity

For the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (KRM) and the Water Framework Directive (WFD), macrozoobenthos is an important indicator group. BioMon partners Naturalis and BaseClear are researching how we can optimize DNA metabarcoding methods to monitor macrozoobenthos. In 2018 a field experiment was carried out for the Amelander Sand Supplementation. This research is in collaboration with Rijkswaterstaat and GimaRIS.
