Spring zooplankton distribution in the Bay of Biscay from 1998 to 2006 in relation with anchovy recruitment
The objective of this study was to investigate whether successive recruitment failures in the anchovy fishery in the Bay of Biscay were due to changes in the zooplankton biomass or composition. ImageExpand
Survey of the Chemical Defence Potential of Diatoms: Screening of Fifty Species for α,β,γ,δ-unsaturated aldehydes
TLDR
This work examined the PUA-production of 50 diatom species (71 isolates) in order to provide a basis for the interpretation of laboratory and field results on the influence of diatom food on the reproductive success of their consumers. Expand
An overview of Calanus helgolandicus ecology in European waters
TLDR
Current knowledge and understanding of the biology and ecology of the calanoid copepod Calanus helgolandicus in European waters are reviewed, as well as a collaborative synthesis of data from 18 laboratories and 26 sampling stations in areas distributed from the northern North Sea to the Aegean and Levantine Seas, to improve ability to forecast future changes in response to a warming climate.

SURVEY OF THE CHEMICAL DEFENCE POTENTIAL OF DIATOMS: SCREENING OF FIFTY ONE SPECIES FOR a,b,g,dYUNSATURATED ALDEHYDES
TLDR
This work has examined the PUA-production of 51 diatom species (71 isolates) in order to provide a basis for the interpretation of laboratory and field results on the influence of diatom food on the reproductive success of their consumers. Expand
Metabarcoding of marine zooplankton: prospects, progress and pitfalls
Metabarcoding (large-scale taxonomic identification of complex samples via analysis of one or few orthologous DNA regions, called barcodes) is revolutionizing analysis of biodiversity of marineExpand
18S rRNA V9 metabarcoding for diet characterization: a critical evaluation with two sympatric zooplanktivorous fish species
TLDR
The method was capable of discriminating species within the reference database in a reliable way providing there was at least one variable position in the 18S V9 region and successfully discriminated diet between both fish species, including habitat and diel differences among sardines, overcoming some of the limitations of traditional visual‐based diet analysis methods.

Is metabarcoding suitable for estuarine plankton monitoring? A comparative study with microscopy
TLDR
The results indicate that metabarcoding is a powerful approach with excellent possibilities for use in plankton monitoring, early detection of NIS and plankton biodiversity shifts. Expand
Single nucleotide polymorphism discovery in albacore and Atlantic bluefin tuna provides insights into worldwide population structure.
TLDR
The development of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in albacore and BFT and the application of these SNPs to survey genetic variability across the geographic ranges of these tunas are reported. Expand
Survey of the chemical defence potential of diatoms: screening of fifty one species for alpha,beta,gamma,delta-unsaturated aldehydes.
TLDR
This work examined the PUA-production of 51 diatom species (71 isolates) in order to provide a basis for the interpretation of laboratory and field results on the influence of diatom food on the reproductive success of their consumers. Expand
Fecundity limitation of Calanus helgolandicus, by the parasite Ellobiopsis sp.
The effect ofthe parasite Ellobiopsis sp., on the fecundity of Calanus helgolandicus and Calanoides carinatus in the Bay of Biscay, was investigated in May 2003. An average of 6.8% of C.Expand
