Vacancy Title Structure and changes in shallow benthic populations of Brittany coast,in relation to environmental parameters
Country of employment France
Job description Brittany shallow coastal bottoms are characterised by a large diversity of soft-bottom communities. Among many habitats of interest, maerl habitat is well-known and has a recognized biological and heritage value, while Haploops habitats are less studied but tend to spread over larger areas. The aim of this postdoc will be : (1) to characterize the spatial patterns of the main soft-bottom benthic communities in relation to environmental parameters originated from existing numerical models, (2)to compare current vs. historic distributions of benthic communities either locally (e.g. at the scale of the bay) or regionally (e.g. at the scale of South Brittany) and (3) to seek environmental parameters combinations that best explain the distribution of target habitats such as maerl habitat (as a primary producer model) or Haploops habitat (as a suspension-feeder model). This investigation is part of a larger environmental effort designed to better understand and manage
benthic habitats using relevant tools.

Keywords: soft-bottom benthic communities, maerl habitat, Haploops habitat, spatial structure, environmental parameters, numerical models, South Brittany.
