Bedforms as benthic habitats: living on the edge, chaos, order and complexity


Bedforms as benthic habitats are studied increasingly as acquisition and analysis of acoustic data improve in capturing, visualizing and quantifying terrain variables on various scales. However, feedback mechanisms between geomorphology and benthos are not always clear and complexity increases where humans also affect the benthos-landscape relationship. Based on research-oriented seabed mapping along the Belgian part of the North Sea (BPNS), a synthesis is provided on where increased biodiversity has been observed in relation to active bedforms
