Abstract: Modification of biogeochemical processes are analysed considering changes of benthic vegetation in coastal lagoons with different eutrophication levels. The key functions of coastal lagoons can be regarded as primarily affected by primary producer and microbial communities, which control oxygen and nutrient cycling. In turn, oxygen availability and reactions of sulfur, iron and phosphorus can provide stability and robustness of coastal ecosystem determining biogeochemical buffers.
