Nadia Améziane, Professor at MNHN, director of the Station de biologie marine de Concarneau. Her research focuses on the exploration and description of biodiversity, especially Antarctic marine invertebrates. Her works also focuse on systematics, ontogenesis, evolution, biogeography and ecology of living crinoidea (Echinodermata). So she had a strong interest in clarifying the systematic status and evolutionary relationships of living crinoids, as well as better understanding their ecology and distributions. She is also interested by the relationship between the ontogeny of these organisms and the impact of environmental conditions. She is active in the museum collections; she is the scientific manager of invertebrate collection (except terrestrial arthropods). She is also member of French committee of the deep sea fleet operating under IFREMER.

Romain Causse is Technician at MNHN. He works mainly on ichthyology, especially marine species. His research focuses on the ecology, ecoregionalisation and taxinomy of demersal fishes from Antarctica (Dumont d’Urville Sea). He also participated to other programs on the exploration and description of the ichthyodiversity on fishes along the East Atlantic, Indo-Pacific and South Indian Ocean, due to his strong experience of the identification on marine and especially deep-sea fishes. Recently, he works on the ecology and physiology of diadrom gobiids in the Indian Ocean. He participates to the management of the national collection of Ichthyology of the MNHN, in taking in charge the subcollection of deep-sea fishes, the registration and data management. Finally, he is in charge of health & safety aspects, logistics for field missions and also aspects of centralization and data management of MNHN marine expedetitions.

Guy Duhamel, Professor at UMR BOREA (MNHN)
He works on Ichthyology in the Southern Ocean and South Indian Ocean. The main topics of research are systematic, biogeography and eco-regionalisation, ecology of endemic species, population dynamics and fisheries. He has conducted many at-sea scientific cruises (biodiversity, foraging areas of marine predators, biomass surveys) and focus now on the by-catch problems and negative impact of fishing gears on the marine ecosystems. He devotes his activity on the Kerguelen Plateau (recently promoting a multidisciplinay symposium) with active collaboration with Australian partners (AAD, CSIRO, UTAS). Collections (including DNA for barcoding, otoliths), database use and mapping are tools to reach his scientific objectives.
