Quite often there are many proposed explanations,
but because it is difficult to carry out real
experiments in the beach environment, especially when waves complicate
research, it is difficult to know which explanation is correct. Many difficult
challanges face scientists before we really understand the mechanisms
that are in action within the beach environment.
Aquascope shows you many of the organisms on the beach
By using Aquascope you can learn more
about most of the organisms you are likely to encounter whilst visiting
a sand beach in Sweden. Our intention is that you, without special knowledge
or equipement, would be able to identify many of the organisms according
to their group (phyllum) and specie. You can find information about many
individual specie, but for most terrestial plants, insects, fish, birds
and mammels, we have only left a summary. These groups have been treated
in more detail in a number of very good guide
books (unfortunately only in Swedish).
