Abstract Objectives :
In order to follow the benthic community change in the upstream part of the Rance estuary (poly- and mesohaline areas), a spatio-temporal study is in progress, which aims to compare the structure of the benthic communities with:
(1) The previous results of Desroy (1995);
(2)Those present in a morphologically similar but unmanaged system, the Trieux estuary.
