"In recent years, particularly during the development of the Global Program Census of Marine Life (2000-2010) (www.coml.org), the HEBCE region was the subject of new regional observations under the aegis of the International Census Of Marine Microbes (ICoMM). These efforts included new sampling strategies, i.e., more intensive (time-series) and opportunistic sampling using a variety of tools, i.e. besides the hand-held photography and video, sediment corers (single gravity corers, multicorers and box-corers) and robotic devices (AUVs, ROVs) equipped with sampling and video capabilities. Biodiversity was addressed with new molecular analytical tools.
