Resumo:  Network analysis was used to analyse steady-state models of the food webs of two intertidat mudflat ecosystems: Aiguillon Cove and Brouage Mudflat, on the South-Western Atlantic Coast of France. The aim was to highlight emergent properties of food-web functioning in these two ecosystems and to compare these properties with other coastal ecosystems. Both ecosystems imported detritus in parallel to a high benthic primary production. They were characterised by a high diversity of resources. Both also exported living material, leading to a high quality production, quantified as export of Exergy. This export was mainly composed of cultivated bivalves during the cold season for Brouage Mudflat, and of the migration of grazing fish in Aiguillon Cove during the warm season. Their internal organization was characterised by short pathways, high recycling, high redundancy and low net ecosystem production, compared to the other systems selected. These characteristics, encountered in many estuaries, presented less extreme values. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
