The results of 10 years monitoring on the Groot Buitenschoor are reported. Macrobenthos data were analysed to explore both temporal and spatial trends in biomass and density, related to some abiotic parameters (sediment composition, altitude). Micro-pollution of the sediment was examined for several years. Evolutions in tidal marsh vegetation were assessed by comparison of two vegetation maps. Changes in wintering and migrating waterbird communities were analysed and related to environmental characteristics and macrobenthos populations. Finally an attempt was made to identify possible impacts of the construction and exploitation of the nearby container terminal.
