dc.description.abstractGlobal warming, pollution and other anthropogenic influences severely affect species richness and alter community structure and composition of marine environments globally. To better understand how marine invertebrate communities changed over the last centuries in the southern North Sea, we conducted a field study on and around the shores of the German island of Helgoland to observe selected marine environments. This study focuses on Anthozoa, a sessile group of cnidarians, because of their sensitivity to environmental changes such as global warming and pollution. We observed which anthozoan species are currently present in the rocky shore and the offshore benthic environment “Tiefe Rinne” of Helgoland and how this compares to previous estimates (37-87 years ago). The two localities observed are inhabited by different species, except one species (Sagartiogeton laceratus) that was found in both environments. Our results show that the community composition of anthozoans changed in both environments over time. While in the „Tiefe Rinne“ the species richness remained the same, the species richness in the rocky shore decreased. Our results could be explained by the displacement of certain anthozoan species due to anthropogenic impacts and the introduction of neobiotic taxa through increased global shipping. However, sampling was only conducted for a short period of time, and the possibility of misidentifications cannot be excluded. Further sampling and the addition of molecular data to improve species identification, would greatly enhance this study.eng
