A comparison of Landsat ETM+, SPOT HRV, Ikonos, ASTER, and airborne MASTER data for coral reef habitat mapping in South Pacific islands
The performances of the Landsat-7 ETM+, ASTER, SPOT HRV, and Ikonos satellite sensors and the airborne MASTER (MODIS‐ASTER simulator) were compared for coral reef habitat mapping in South PacificExpand

Spatial and temporal patterns of settlement of the brown macroalgae Turbinaria ornata and Sargassum mangarevense in a coral reef on Tahiti
Turbinaria ornata and Sargassum mangarevense are the most conspicuous macroalgal species that grow on the reefs of Tahiti and other high islands of French Polynesia. This study reports on aExpand

The remarkable population size of the endangered clam Tridacna maxima assessed in Fangatau Atoll (Eastern Tuamotu, French Polynesia) using in situ and remote sensing data
Several lagoons of the Eastern Tuamotu Atolls (French Polynesia) are characterized by enormous populations of the clam Tridacna maxima, a species considered as endangered in many locations worldwide.Expand

Drivers of density for the exploited giant clam Tridacna maxima: a meta‐analysis
Giant clam populations have been over-exploited throughout their range over the past decades for their meat and shells. Tridacna maxima, commonly known as the ‘small giant clam’, has remainedExpand

Microbial diversity in a submarine carbonate edifice from the serpentinizing hydrothermal system of the Prony Bay (New Caledonia) over a 6-year period
Active carbonate chimneys from the shallow marine serpentinizing Prony Hydrothermal Field were sampled 3 times over a 6 years period at site ST09. Archaeal and bacterial communities composition wasExpand

Airborne hyperspectral detection of microbial mat pigmentation in Rangiroa atoll (French Polynesia)
The pigmentation of a cyanobacterial mat located in Rangiroa atoll (French Polynesia) was characterized using low-altitude (500 m) Compact Airborne Spectrometer Imager hyperspectral measurements.Expand

Physical, chemical, and microbiological characteristics of microbial mats (kopara) in the South Pacific atolls of French Polynesia.
Microbial mats that develop in shallow brackish and hyposaline ponds in the rims of two French polynesian atolls (Rangiroa and Tetiaroa) were intensively investigated during the past three years.Expand

Taxonomic revision of Sargassum sect. Acanthocarpicae (Fucales, Phaeophyceae)
Sargassum is one of the morphologically most complex phaeophyceaen genera, and is divided into subgenera, sections, subsections, series and species groups based on highly polymorphic characters.Expand

Molecular and morphological relationships between two closely related species, Turbinaria ornata and T. conoides (Sargassaceae, Phaeophyceae)
We employed four markers (two chloroplastic, one mitochondrial and one nuclear) to investigate whether Turbinaria ornata and Turbinaria conoides, two morphologically similar brown algae, are distinctExpand
