Objective Research: Establishing an inventory of deep benthic biodiversity in Guadeloupe, measuring the macroecological characteristics of the deep benthos on a site in the Caribbean biogeographical region and highlight the similarities with and differences from Indo-Pacific sites already studied by the MNHN team (Tropical Deep Sea Benthos programme); discovering new species. Collections: creating "new generation" reference collections, including tissue and DNA collections, photo bases of living animals and sequenced tissue vouchers. Conservation: bringing new scientific bases for deep benthic fauna which managers will be able to base their actions on; establishing a baseline state based on appropriate sampling; making a standardized and reproducible tool available for monitoring specific diversity. Communications: share the dynamics of a major naturalist expedition as broadly as possible with the general public, managers and amateurs. Management: improve the visibility of protected species of Overseas France by feeding national (INPN) and international (GBIF, BOLD, OBIS) biodiversity databases. The related project is the Tropical Deep Sea Benthos programme.
