Benthic ecology is a large and very diverse field that explores how organisms that live on the ocean floor interact with and influence the biotic and abiotic environment. Studies occur in a wide variety of distinct major habitats, including coral reefs, kelp forests, estuaries, salt marshes, sediment and rocky bottoms, intertidal, subtidal.

Monthly sampling, reveals low diversity - high density communities with great fluctuations in numerical abundance. In spring and summer (April-July), very high densities (>10 6 ind/m 2) have been found. Both benthic and periphytal copepods are much more abundant than planktonic forms. Abstract.
This study provides an inventory of the recent benthic macrofaunal communities in the entire Baltic Sea. The analyses of soft-bottom benthic invertebrate community data based on over locations in the Baltic Sea suggested the existence of 10 major communities based on species abundances and 17 communities based on species biomasses, by: Habitat loss and disturbance affect benthic habitats and many benthic communities are also negatively affected by eutrophication.
Of special concern is the large area with low oxygen, or no oxygen at all, in deep waters of the central Baltic Sea, which limits the distribution of benthic fauna with implications for overall food web productivity.

Here we analyse the impact/importance of sediment types and depth on the distribution of benthic animals in a relatively small (ca. 10 km2) archipelago area consisting of a mosaic of differ-ent benthic habitats interspaced with islands and skerries. ding impacts on benthic communities have received much less attention (Klier et al.

This core indicator evaluates the status of the bird species breeding in the Baltic Sea area by assessing fluctuations in abundance. As a rule, good status is achieved when the abundance of 75% of the considered species making up a species group do not decline by more than 30% (20% in species laying only one egg per year) compared to a baseline during the reference period The following animals are examples of species listed as endangered or vulnerable in the Baltic Sea area: the sturgeon (Acipenser sturio) has been found only sporadically during the last century and is classified as extinct on the Swedish Red List (Gärdenfors ), while it is generally listed as critically endangered by IUCN.

This paper reports the first phase of an extended exercise in benthic ecology, involving both long- and short-term aims. The short-term aim is to examine the benthic fauna of representative substrate types for a period of a year and to compute the net secondary production of the infaunal macrofauna in terms of ash-free dry weight per square metre per by: The abundance of organisms decreased progressively towards the more estaurine zone.

Fluctuations in abundance of Baltic sprat are connected with saltwater inflows but mainly indirectly, via the stock dynamics of cod, the main predator of sprat.
