Heavy and constant inputs of freshwater into the north of the Berre lagoon over a period of more than 20 years, due to the diversion of the Durance River, resulted in the total disappearance of the macrobenthos at depths of more than 5 m. Only one community that had adapted well to the brackish conditions had survived on the thin coastal fringe. In 1990, abnormal drought conditions resulted in the interruption of freshwater inputs for a period of 7 months. A study of the changes in the benthic… CONTINUE READING
