This map of the benthic communities of the normano-breton Gulf is picked up from the thesis of Christian Rétière, entitled "Contribution à la connaissance des peuplements benthiques du golfe normanno-breton", published in 1979. This map was digitized in 2003, as part of the REBENT programme, i.e. the surveying network for the benthic fauna and flora. The original legend is transferred to the "ORIG_HAB" attribute data fied. The harmonization with the EUNIS typology was made in 2006, as part of the REBENT and Interreg-MESH programmes.
