Decrease in biodiversity of the Black Sea coastal bottom communitiesafter the invasion of comb-bearers Mnemiopsis leidyi

The main directions of study:

Benthos communities of the shelf zone (microand macro-phytobenthos, macro-zoobenthos, meiobenthos and benthic protozoa): their diversity, structure and functioning.
Natural and anthropogenic variability of coastal bottom ecosystems.
Invading species and their impact on the benthic flora and fauna structure and productivity.
Pelagiс processes and benthic communities.
