The accidental introduction and rapid spread of the tropical green algae Caulerpa taxifolia around Monaco have led Ifremer to conduct a study programme, since 1992, between Menton and Cap d'Ail. To better determine the impact of this species in the marine environment, a detailed bio-sedimentary map to a depth of 100 m was necessary, at a scale of 1 : 7500. Following a presentation of the geographical and physical context of the area studied, the research techniques implemented (side scan sonar, underwater video, aerial photographs, dives and sampling), a precise description of the nature of the different substrates and the distribution of the main benthic species is provided. Special attention was focused on studying phanerogame beds of Posidonia oceanica and Cymodocea nodosa. The Caulerpa taxifolia populations were listed in bottom coverage percentage classes, for the period between October 1995 and October 1996.
