General information :
To estimate the resilience of deep hydrothermal species, functional connectivity between sites, which depends on the dispersal capacities of the species, is a fundamental criterion for the long-term maintenance of populations in the face of the potential impact of mining on the degree of fragmentation of this habitat, which is also temporally unstable. This connectivity will be approached at several time and space scales by population genomics methods on a series of species chosen according to their life history traits and their distribution in the rear-arc basins of the Southwest Pacific.
