Conocimientos fundamentales sobre las algas sargazo y los microorganismos asociados

  • Basic knowledge on Sargassum and overview of the current results from the 2017 cruises
Dr Frédéric Ménard

Research director at the Research Institute for Development France

He conducts research on the functioning of marine ecosystems in the context of global change: ecology, predator-prey relationships, fisheries and biodiversity.

Since 2016, he has been leading two projects of the Ministry of Ecology on Sargassum.

  • In situ observations of diversity and distribution of Sargassum and associated fauna
Dr Amy Siuda

Ecker College - Floride

For over a decade, she has studied the distribution and diversity of pelagic Sargassum and its closely associated faunal community.

In 2015, Dr. Siuda and colleagues were the first to recognize that a previously rare Sargassum form was abundant in the equatorial Atlantic as well as in the newly episodic Caribbean inundation events

  • Fundametal knowledge on Sargassum on their associated microorganisms
Dr Pascal Jean Lopez

Directeur de Recherche au CNRS

Directeur de l’Observatoire Hommes-Milieux Littoral Caraïbe.

A microbiologist by training and holder of a doctoral thesis carried out at the École Normale Supérieure, he is now co-head of a research team at the Biology of Aquatic Organisms and Ecosystems Laboratory, which is located at the National History Museum Natural in Paris and also at the University of the Antilles.

  • Sargassum distribution and abundance reveal a World Heritage
Paulo Horta

Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina - Brésil

He is the head of the Brazilian sargassum network,

whose goal is to strengthen research and support for university programs

focused on solutions to environmental problems linked to this phenomenon.
