Description

The Metawad project is a continuation of long-term demographic research of migrating shorebirds. In the project we aim to determine limiting factors for five characteristic species in the Dutch Waddensea. Knowledge of such limitations is crucial to develop sustainable management to maintain and improve biodiversity in the Waddensea.
