Variability is investigated at different levels (genetial, physiological, morphological, demographical and behavioural) on the cosmopolitan ophiuroid Amphipholis squamata. This variabilité is correlated to predation pressures (biotic and abiotic) in order to understand the microevolution in marine biotope.
