Hello Alexis,
This is an interesting subject. As a suggestion, may I recommend including a discussion of the evolution of transect surveys for the taxonomic identification of the marine benthos. The advent of high-resolution video and video computer analysis (see e.g., Cruz et al., Brazilian Journal of Oceanography 56: 271-280 for an application) has made identification of the benthos more reliable than studies relying on in-situ identification.
