Variability of coastal ecosystems and impact of the coastal protection's plan in St. Lawrence gulf
The main objectives are to measure the biological characteristics of coastal habitats (biomass, productivity, diversity) and to understand the physical and anthropological factors that influence those characteristics. More precisely, we will estimate the biomass, the productivity, the diversity and the carbon storage of different ecosystems; ii) compare the natural and impacted sites; iii) establish the genetic links between populations; and iv) evaluate the impact of coastal protection plans.
