Structure and functioning of the benthic food web in intertidal mudflats of Guiana coasts: Conservation issues for birds and fish.
In every ecosystem, all living things are linked by the food they eat. The energy derived from food is transferred through several food chains based on predator-prey relationships, which ultimately built up a food web. By reviewing the interactions of organisms that feed on one another, my thesis explores the diversity of the benthic food web and its role in supporting coastal fish and shore birds along the extreme dynamic Guiana mudflats
