In chapter 1.3 (Section A) a global overview of the most endangered sea- coast habitats was already provided. The European seas and coasts are characterised by a large number of ecosystem types which will be described below. Particularly sensitive and therefore endangered coastal areas in Europe are salt meadows and dune landscapes and the ecosystem of the Wadden Sea (mudflats) (cf. chapters 6, 7 and 9). An overview of the most important characteristics and peculiarities of European seas and coasts is in chapter 5.3.
