Research into the linking mechanisms between biodiversity and production of meiobenthos. Description of the structural biodiversity of benthic communities in specific polar habitats (sponge spicules mats, bryozoan structures, algal debris,...). Temporal variation of meiobenthic diversity in Antarctic coastal ecosystems.
