Description 
Summary

The objectives of the study were to estimate the prokaryote and archaeal diversity, to analyze the phylogenetic relationships of the same groups, compare the phylogenetic composition of these communities with other benthic microbial communities, from previously described similar sites and investigate the links between the phylogenetic composition and specific biomarkers
