An international team (Norway Switzerland, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, United States) with researchers from the CEA (Genoscope, CEA-Jacob), the CNRS, Ifremer and Sorbonne University has produced a dataset of the deep ocean floor and compared it to the other oceanic realms at a worldwide scale. The results, published in the 4 February 2022 edition of Science Advances, show that the deep oceanic floor is home to a mostly unknown biodiversity largely superior to that of plankton. The team sheds light as well on the complex relationships between planktonic and benthic (relating to the ocean floor) organisms within the ocean's vital carbon pump function.
