Inorganic carbon fixation by chemosynthetic ectosymbionts and nutritional transfers to the hydrothermal vent host-shrimp Rimicaris exoculata
The first demonstration of such capabilities in a decapod crustacean supports the previously discarded hypothesis of transtegumental absorption of dissolved organic matter or carbon as a common nutritional pathway. Expand
A preliminary assessment of the deep-sea Decapoda collected during the KARUBENTHOS 2015 Expedition to Guadeloupe Island.
A preliminary assessment of the deep-sea Decapoda is proposed for Guadeloupe Island based solely on high definition macro photographs taken during the KARUBENTHOS 2015 Expedition to the Island (R/VExpand
New taxonomy and old collections: integrating DNA barcoding into the collection curation process
This work is the result of a joint effort from several teams in the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN), but also from a collaborative network of taxonomists and molecular systematists outside the museum, resulting in the vouchering so far of ∼41’000 sequences and the production of ∼11 000 COI sequences.

The early life history of tissue oxygenation in crustaceans: the strategy of the myodocopid ostracod Cylindroleberis mariae
As Cylindroleberididae are early crustaceans exhibiting a remarkable stasis since the Palaeozoic, present data illustrates how principles of tissue oxygenation strategy can cover an impressive time scale. Expand
Patchiness of deep‐sea communities in Papua New Guinea and potential susceptibility to anthropogenic disturbances illustrated by seep organisms
The deep-sea part of the "Papua Niugini Biodiversity Expedition" surveyed the deep-sea environments along the coasts of New Guinea Island in the Bismarck Sea, from the Vitiaz Strait to the borderExpand
Phylogeny and evolution of shallow‐water squat lobsters (Decapoda, Galatheoidea) from the Indo‐Pacific
The hypothesis that the late Paleogene–Neogene transition was a period of rapid diversification for shallow‐water species of both Galatheidae and Munididae in the Indo‐Pacific region is supported. Expand
Four times more species of sea spiders (Arthropoda: Pycnogonida) in Martinique Island (Lesser Antilles)
The marine biodiversity of the tropical northwestern Atlantic (TNWA) has been explored by many great naturalist expeditions. After more than one century of marine exploration, how well do we know itsExpand
A review of the Chaenostoma boscii species-complex (Decapoda: Brachyura: Macrophthalmidae) from the Indo-West Pacific
After examining specimens of the C. boscii species-complex from East Africa, the Malay Peninsula, Indonesia, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Taiwan, and the Ryukyus, the sentinel crabs are considered to be valid species, and C. lisae (Poupin & Bouchard, 2010) is found to be a synonym of C. crassimanus.

Biodiversity of deep-sea organisms associated with sunken-wood or other organic remains sampled in the tropical indo-pacific.
The preliminary finding about the biodiversity of major zoological groups but also fungi found during this program of cruises devoted to the exploration of sunken-wood habitats is reported. Expand
