Classé dans : Summer field campaigns | 0

PROTEKER 1 (DOI French oceanic cruises)
(12 dec. 2011 – 9 jan. 2012 on the field) made it possible to chose and begin to install thermo-recorders at 5 and 15 m depth at 6 sites. A small number of “tests” species, selected before for their features of contrasted life history ({e.g}. mode of reproduction), have been collected all around the island to be tested again and to highlight or not a change (Rapport).
