Abstract Submarine canyons can trap and concentrate organic falls, like terrestrial debris, including wood. Sunken wood creates a unique ecosystem in the deep sea, which base, i.e. the microbial communities directly degrading this wood, remains poorly studied. Our aim was thus to examine the wood degrading microbial community by comparing oak samples experimentally deployed in experimental mooring arrays in the Blanes Canyon (BC) and its adjacent open slope (NW Mediterranean Sea). We analyzed… CONTINUE READING
