Interactions between coastal pelagic and benthic food webs: modelling physical and ecological processes in a Mediterranean site


This project concerns a study of the interactions between trophic pelagic and benthic chains in the Calvi Bay (Corsica, France). A deep knowledge of these different ecosystems is nessecary (structure and functioning). The Laboratory of Oceanology studies especially the ecosystem of Posidonia oceanica
