This thesis describes the complexity of food webs, analysed mainly with help of stable isotopes. Who eats whom in an ecosystem, and can this be translated to a food web that integrates time and space? How can food web studies by valuable? I searched for the possibilities to use the food web position of indicator species as an indicator for the (spatially) variable state of the Wadden Sea food web.
