Project: Ecosystem Vision of the Kalkense Meersen

project duration
01-APR-02 – 31-MAR-04
abstract
An ecosystem vision should be developed for a more than 1000 ha large area of river polders, dunes and former river meanders along the Scheldt Estuary at Wetteren. The starting point are the present biological values and the nature potentials of the area, which are mainly driven by ecohydrology, pedology and biological parameters. Several scenarios of possible management measures are developed in order to realise the nature potentials, taking other uses of the area into account.
