Abstract/Summary

Community composition of hard-bottom macroinvertebrates in seven regional seas as measured using traditional and metabarcoding methods. •ASUs are promising devices to standardize sampling •Morphological identification at the class level can be easily and reliably done by a single person even for very different environments. It does not provide such discriminatory power as metabarcoding (at the species level) • Metabarcoding does not mimic traditional taxonomy but provides comparable results •We shall analyse the influence of environmental factors on this data set
