    Distribution of biomass (ash free dry weight in g/m²) for 10 key species modeled with random forests method.Macrozoobenthic data from 1191 sampling stations located in the German part of the Baltic Sea were analyzed (data sources: Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research). Samples have been collected from 1999 to 2015. Sample data were averaged per stations and standardized to the area of 1 m².For modeling R package “Random Forest” (RF, Version 4.6–7, Liaw and Wiener, 2002), based on random forests statistical analysis (Breiman, 2001) is used.Predictors and modeling algorithm as described in Gogina, M., Morys, C., Forster, S., Gräwe, U., Friedland, R., Zettler, M.L. 2017.

    Distribution of community bioturbation potential BPc (log-transformed values) resulting from random forest modeling using BPc as response variable. Bioturbation potential BPc is a metric to quantitatively estimate bioturbation intensity from benthic quantitative data suggested by Solan et al. (2004). Macrozoobenthic data from 1191 sampling stations located in the German part of the Baltic Sea were analyzed (data sources: Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research).

    Distribution of community bioturbation potential BPc (log-transformed values) resulting from natural neighbour interpolation. Bioturbation potential BPc is a metric to estimate bioturbation intensity from benthic quantitative data suggested by Solan et al. (2004). Macrozoobenthic data from 1191 sampling stations located in the German part of the Baltic Sea was used (data sources: Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research). Samples have been collected from 1999 to 2015. Sample data were averaged per stations and standardized to the area of 1 m².Natural neighbour interpolation finds the closest subset of input samples to a query point and applies weights to them based on proportionate areas in order to interpolate a value (Sibson, 1981). Its basic properties are that it is local, using only a subset of samples that surround a query point, and that interpolated heights are guaranteed to be within the range of the samples used. All details are reported in Gogina, M., Morys, C., Forster, S., Gräwe, U., Friedland, R., Zettler, M.L. 2017.
