Use of biotic indices in semi-enclosed coastal ecosystems and transitional waters habitats - Implications for the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive
This study deals with the application of macrozoobenthos-based biotic indices (BI) within the frame of the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive. More precisely, this study aimedExpand
Development of a multimetric approach to assess perturbation of benthic macrofauna in Zostera noltii beds.
Abstract Biotic indices based on soft-bottom macrozoobenthic communities are currently used throughout Europe to assess the ecological quality of coastal and transitional water bodies according toExpand
Recent discovery of Paranthura japonica Richardson, 1909 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Paranthuridae) in European marine waters (Arcachon Bay, Bay of Biscay)
The Asiatic isopod Paranthura japonica Richardson, 1909 was collected in 2007 in Arcachon Bay (SW France), where the species occurs in a variety of habitats, both in the intertidal and at shallowExpand
Cockle infection by Himasthla quissetensis – I. From cercariae emergence to metacercariae infection
Abstract The European cockle ( Cerastoderma edule ) is an exploited bivalve along the North-Eastern Atlantic semi-sheltered ecosystems. Its population dynamics are driven by numerous environmentalExpand
Recent expansion of the oriental shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus (Crustacea: Decapoda) on the western coasts of France
The invasive oriental shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus Rathbun, 1902 has considerably extended its distribution in transitional waters along the Atlantic and Channel coasts of France during the periodExpand
A new species of the Marphysa sanguinea complex from French waters (Bay of Biscay, NE Atlantic) (Annelida, Eunicidae)
Abstract A new species of Eunicidae, Marphysa victori sp. n., has been identified from Arcachon Bay, Bay of Biscay, NE Atlantic. This new species, belonging to the sanguinea complex, is characterisedExpand
First record of the non-indigenous Melita nitida Smith, 1873 (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Melitidae) in the Bay of Biscay (NE Atlantic).
The non-native amphipod Melita nitida Smith, 1873 was collected between 2013 and 2016 in Arcachon Bay, Hossegor Lake and the Gironde Estuary (SW France) in intertidal oyster reefs and under stones.Expand
Estuarine habitats structure zooplankton communities: Implications for the pelagic trophic pathways
Estuarine ecosystems have been described as a mosaic of habitats exhibiting different physical, biological and chemical properties and processes. These habitats are of primary importance for fishes,Expand
Consistent patterns of spatial variability between NE Atlantic and Mediterranean rocky shores
Examining how variability in population abundance and distribution is allotted among different spatial scales can inform of processes that are likely to generate that variability. Results of studiesExpand
