Abstract Community types classified by TWINSPAN and mapped by combined indicator kriggings. Target community: 79 species of fish, 2 cephalopods and 3 macro-benthic species

Biologic data have been expressed in abundance (Number of individuals per km²). Community classes were obtained from TWINSPAN analysis. Community classes distribution was obtained by combining probability maps of belonging to each class.
Keywords Species data set, CHARM, Habitats et biotopes, communauté écologique
Lineage The classification of the communities was based on data from the CGFS survey (1988-2004). It comprises a total of 79 fish species, two cephalopods and three macro-invertebrate benthic species.
