Pressure effects On marine prokaryoTES (POTES)

Abstract: The ANR POTES program (Pressure effects On marine prokaryoTES) project concerns the role of marine micro-organisms in the mineralization of particulate (POM) and dissolved (DOM) organic matter and on the regeneration of biogenic compounds (silicates, carbonates) in the meso- and bathypelagic zones of the Ocean. Nowadays, most of the information regarding these processes comes from the epi-pelagic ... View entire text

Purpose: The major aim of the POTES project is to determine the effect of pressure on prokaryote community structure, and on their activities related to the OM transformation and mineralization using a double and innovative approach based on both laboratory experiments and in situ studies (ANTARES and DYFAMED sites, North-Western Mediterranean Sea). Due to the high inputs of anthropic OM in the Ocean ... View entire text
