Global emergency: climate, biodiversity, environment
Doctoral contract financed by Ifremer for a period of three years.
The present study, was aimed to improve our understanding of the environmental conditions that allowed the colonization of the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, in the Bay of Brest since its introduction in the 1960s. It was also aimed to evaluate the potential consequences of future climate change on its reproductive success and further expansion.
The ecological impacts of aquatic invasive species are a growing concern for coastal zone management and conservation.
