This project aims at studying structural and functional biodiversity of harpacticoid copepods by analysing density, diversity and species composition of different sandbanks and by relating changes in harpacticoid communities to the Phaecocystis pouchetii bloom in spring. Special attention will be paid to identify ecological indicatorspecies to be able to indicate vulnerable and valuable areas on the Belgian Continental Shelf.
