(Wadden Sea Long-Term Ecosystem Research)
WaLTER is an initiative of a number of institutes and organisations that carry out long-term measurements and research in the Wadden Sea area.
Our contribution to the project is to provide advice about statistical aspects of monitoring flora and fauna of the Wadden Sea.
Our recommendations focus on identifying critical gaps in the data that are being collected with respect to the monitoring aims and establishing the relationship between properties of the monitoring network (e.g. sampling methods) and the accuracy of analysis results.
