The results of bioassays carried out at three MaPMed port areas (Cagliari, Heraklion and El Kantaoui) were compared and a novel bioindicator, based on behavioural variation of the resident populations of sandhoppers and beachhoppers, was proposed to monitor the impacts on sandy beaches. The paper was published in open-access (CC BY-NC-ND license in the Elsevier) to favour its dissemination to all stakeholders from Mediterranean partner countries, who frequently do not have access to academic libraries.

Les herbiers de Magnoliphytes sont reconnus comme un outil efficace pour l'étude de l'environnement côtier car ils sont très répandue dans le bassin méditerranéen, sont fixés sur le fond et ils sont sensibles à la pollution. Dans la présente étude, on a analysé la concentration de cinq éléments traces (Cd, Zn, Pb, Cu et Ni) au niveau des différentes parties deCymodocea nodosa. C'est au niveau des stations à proximité du port et du point de rejet d'eau usé de Hammam Sousse que l'on enregistre les concentrations les plus élevés en éléments traces. Par ailleurs, la comparaison des teneurs des différentes parties de la plante en métaux traces montre que c'est au niveau des feuilles de la C. nodosa que la concentration est la plus élevé en particulier pour le Cd, le Pb et le Cu.

PAHs are a class of organic compounds which by their nature (low volatility, low solubility, recalcitrance to biological degradation), tend to accumulate in marine sediments. This study investigated the natural PAH degradation by the autochthonous microbial communities present in sediments of three different Mediterranean tourist ports: Cagliari (Italy), El Kantaoui (Tunisia) and Heraklion (Greece). Bacterial populations able to degrade petroleum hydrocarbons are present in surface sediments from the port areas. Moreover, a spatial variation is evident among Heraklion port sectors according to their different uses. Microcosms were set up with the aim to evaluate aerobic and anoxic phenanthrene (Phe) degradation. The autochthonous microbial communities were able to almost-fully degrade Phe, in aerobic conditions, in 56 days, while in 120 days, no relevant degradation was found in anoxic conditions, except for Heraklion microcosms.

Port areas pose major concerns due to the presence of toxic pollutants and to their harmful effects on the marine ecosystems and human ealth. Hydrocarbon contamination, associated with the heavy boat traffic and related facilities, is one of the major environmental problems. Moreover,  tourist ports are subject to seasonal massive impact. This work is part of a multidisciplinary characterization of the tourist ports of Cagliari IT, El Kantaoui TN, Heraklion GR, carried out within the MAPMED project aimed to improve the environmental sustainability of tourist coastal areas in the Mediterranean Sea Basin with regard to monitoring and reduction of marine hydrocarbon pollution. Two sampling campaigns were carried out during winter and late spring, before the touristic season, and a third one is planned after the touristic season. In each port, samples of seawater, superficial and anoxic sediments were collected at different stations. A combination of culture-dependent (MPN of different metabolic groups) and -independent approaches (T-RFLP of 16S rRNA gene and other genes) has been employed in order to define the seasonal and spatial variations in the Bacteria and Archaea communities.
