Abstract: About 75% of the world's shoreline is composed of beach environments. Among them, the sandy beach is a familiar environment and used for tourism and recreation. The organisms that live in these environments, as polychaetes, crustaceans and mollusks, are almost unknown by people because they live buried. Thus, many time people could cause damage to these organisms without their own knowledge. Trampling is one of the human-induced impacts to those organisms, destroying their bodies or even dispelling them. Focus… Show more

“…The ecological status of submerged sandy beaches can be assessed by analyzing the composition and abundance of benthic macrofauna as macrofauna living in the intertidal zone can be particularly vulnerable to beach activities and disturbances [37][38][39][40]. Even if the data on specific impacts influencing macrofauna are limited, the number of studies regarding the response of macrofaunal communities and populations towards physical disturbances has increased in recent decades [41][42][43][44][45][46][47][48][49].…”

“…Some of the studies are based on single indicator species, while others are focused on the overall macrofaunal community. Especially the organisms living buried in the sand, such as polychaetes, molluscs and crustaceans that are directly damaged by beach activities [39]. However, different taxa have different levels of sensitivity to disturbance, with certain species having been reported to be more vulnerable than others [42].…”
