The recent development of biological sensors has extended marine plankton studies from conducting laboratory bench work to in vivo and real-time observations. Flow cytometry (FCM) has shed new light on marine microorganisms since the 1980s through its single-cell approach and robust detection of the smallest cells. FCM records valuable optical prop...
Article
Large amounts of nutrients have been released to the coastal ecosystems during the 20th century. Since then, management policies have been implemented and these amounts decreased in the economically developed countries. We examined the bi-decadal changes in nutrients (nitrate + nitrite, ammonium, orthophosphate and silicic acid) in the Arcachon bay...

Article
Coastal marine ecosystems, which play a crucial role in the biogeochemical and ecological functioning of the Earth, are highly sensitive to the combined effects of climate and human activities. Because of their location, coastal ecosystems are directly influenced by human activities, but it remains challenging to assess the spatial and temporal sca...
Article
Adaptation of cell populations to environmental changes is mediated by phenotypic variability at the single-cell level. Enzyme activity is a key factor in cell phenotype and the expression of the alkaline phosphatase activity (APA) is a fundamental phytoplankton strategy for maintaining growth under phosphate-limited conditions. Our aim was to comp...

One way for phytoplankton to survive to orthophosphate depletion is to utilize the dissolved organic phosphorus by expressing alkaline phosphatase. The actual methods to assay the alkaline phosphate activity - either in bulk or as a presence-absence of enzyme activity - fail to provide information on individual living cells. In this context, we dev...

Harmful algal blooms (HABs) occur worldwide, causing health problems and economic damages to fisheries and tourism. Monitoring agencies are therefore essential, yet monitoring is based only on time-consuming light microscopy, a level at which a correct identification can be limited by insufficient morphological characters. The project MIDTAL (Micro...

Measurement of biogenic silica (BSi) in the suspended matter of estuarine and coastal waters is not trivial because of the interference of lithogenic silica (LSi) that can represent up to 90% or more of the total particulate silica within the water column. Till date, no method has provided a satisfying way to correct this mineral interference when...

We present the first in vivo study of diatoms using atomic force microscopy (AFM). Three chain-forming, benthic freshwater species -Eunotia sudetica, Navicula seminulum and a yet unidentified species - are directly imaged while growing on glass slides. Using the AFM, we imaged the topography of the diatom frustules at the nanometre range scale and...
Article
Diatoms, one of the most productive phytoplankton groups in the ocean, have an essential requirement for silicic acid for the construction of their opaline shells. In seawater, silicic acid is present in three chemical species (H4SiO4, H3SiO4−, and H2SiO42−). The silicic acid molecule actually taken up by diatoms is still under discussion. Algal ce...
Article
Results of past studies of the pH-dependent Si uptake kinetics of Phaeodactylum tricornutum Bohlin suggested that the anion SiO(OH) is the chemical form of dissolved Si taken up by marine diatoms. We determined the chemical form of Si taken up by three other marine diatom species and P. tricornutum by examining the kinetics of Si use under two dram...

Most state of the art adhesives fail to bond under wet conditions. Therefore, knowledge of the intrinsic properties of natural adhesives might give valuable information for future engineering approaches. This work investigates the adhesive that Eunotia sudetica, a species of benthic freshwater diatoms, produces to attach itself to a substrate. Atom...
Article
Biological silica production has drawn intense attention and several molecules involved in biosilicification have been identified. Cellular mechanisms, however, remain unknown mainly due to the lack of probes required for obtaining information on live specimens. The fluorescence spectra of the compound 2-(4-pyridyl)-5-((4-(2-dimethylaminoethylamino...

Project
CocoriCO2 is an interdisciplinary project which aims to increase resilience, sustainability and competitiveness of the French shellfish industry, considering environmental risks and more particularly ocean acidification. It is funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) for a total amount of 1.5 M€. To achieve this objective, we propose an innovative partnership between ecologists specialized in shellfish and environment interactions (IFREMER), biogeochemists recognized for their work on ocean acidification (CNRS), representatives of the sector at the national (CNC) and regional levels (CRC Bretagne Nord and Méditerranée) involved in the implementation and monitoring of the project. The project is based on several complementary disciplines, i.e. ecology, bio-geochemistry, physiology, economics and social sciences, well covered by the partnership. The specific objectives of the project consist in observing, analyzing, anticipating and remedying the effects of environmental changes (seawater acidification and warming) on shellfish farming in order to assess the vulnerability of ecosystems, farmed species and businesses to environmental change and more particularly the risk of "acidification". These four operations consist of: 1. observing the natural variability of the seawater pH (acidity) at high frequency over ten production basins representative of the shellfish sector (bays and estuaries, lagoons and nurseries), in relation to other parameters of the carbonate chemistry and the environment, 2. analyzing the impacts of acidification and warming on the growth of the most cultivated bivalves in France (oysters and mussels) during a complete life cycle in a farming situation, 3. anticipating the impacts of acidification and warming on the economy of the shellfish farming sector by integrating the adaptive capacities and the vulnerability of ecosystems and business, 4. remedying the effects of ocean acidification by testing re-vegetation and alkalizing techniques.

This project aimed to 1) quantify particulate organic matter (POM) composition, 2) determine its variation at different spatial (intra- to multi-system) and temporal (seasonal, interanual) scales, 3) identify the forcings (environmental/anthropogenic origin) to POM composition and variability and 4) investigate the link between POM composition and the bacterial compartment, within French coastal systems. This project was based on data, logistic and infrastructure of the national network 'Service d'Observation en Milieu LITtoral' (SOMLIT, INSU) and on complementary sampling campaigns.
