Echinoid Systematics

Analyzing the spatial distribution of taxa requires access to large datasets of georeferenced species records and implies that the systematics of target species is revised. My works in echinoid systematics led to the uploading of the two following databases.

  • A database on Antarctic, sub-Antarctic and cold temperate echinoids of the Southern Hemisphere

  • Another one on Hauterivian fossil echinoids of the Paris basin
