Biodiversity associated with Sabellaria alveolata (Polychaeta: Sabellariidae) reefs: effects of human disturbances
Infauna diversity is reported from the Sabellaria alveolata reefs in the bay of Mont Saint-Michel in France, known as the greatest European reef formation. Polychaetes dominate the fauna, but otherExpand

Effects of epibionts on Sabellaria alveolata (L.) biogenic reefs and their associated fauna in the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel
Biogenic structures built by ecosystem engineers such as corals, bivalves, polychaetes, and sea grasses provide habitat for benthic vertebrates and invertebrates. The polychaete Sabellaria alveolataExpand

Spatio-Temporal Persistence of the Abra Alba-Pectinaria Koreni Muddy-Fine Sand Community of the Eastern Bay of Seine
The spatial distribution and temporal variations of the Abra alba-Pectinaria koreni community from the eastern part of the Bay of Seine were investigated through four winter surveys (1986, 1987, 1988Expand

Dispersion and prospecting behaviour of the polychaete Nereis virens (Sars) as a function of density
Examination of spacing patterns and experimental observations of the polychaete Nereis virens (Sars) prospecting behaviour were combined to study aspects of territoriality under different densityExpand

Tidal power and the aquatic environment of La Rance
The Ranee basin, on the northern coast of Brittany, is the only site where a full-scale evaluation of the ecological impact of a tidal power scheme, after 20 years of operation, has been made. TheExpand

Comparing environmental effects of Rance and Severn barrages
This paper examines the similarities and contrasts between environmental and water quality changes caused by the 1966 tidal power barrage at La Rance in North Brittany, France and those expected toExpand

The use of lipid markers to define sources of organic matter in sediment and food web of the intertidal salt-marsh-flat ecosystem of Mont-Saint-Michel Bay, France
Abstract Salt marsh plants and seven surface sediment samples along a transect in the intertidal flat area of Mont-Saint-Michel Bay were analysed for fatty acids and sterols. The presence of lipidExpand

Drifting in post-larvae and juveniles in an Abra alba (wood) community of the eastern part of the Bay of Seine (English Channel)
Abstract Recent evidence has shown that some intertidal benthic species may re-enter the water column after larval settlement and undergo active and/or passive redistribution but there are noExpand

Distribution and retention of Sabellaria alveolata larvae (Polychaeta: Sabellariidae) in the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, France
The gregarious polychaete Sabellaria alveolata is an important foundation species whose reef structures add topographic complexity and high levels of biodiversity in sandflats. In the Bay ofExpand
