This broad-ranging treatment is the first to synthesise current understanding of all types of cold-water coral, covering their ecology, biology, palaeontology and geology. Beginning with a history of research in the field, the authors describe the approaches needed to study corals in the deep by: "Roberts, Wheeler, Freiwald and Cairns' Cold-Water Corals is the finest review of the cold-water corals available now and likely for some time to come.

Comprehensive and authoritative, it covers their exploration, geology, biology and ecology, human impacts. What do we know about Mediterranean Cold (Deep)-Water coral ecosystems. In this book, specialists offer answers and insights with a series of chapters and short papers about the paleoecology, biology, physiology and ecology of the corals and other organisms that comprise these : Hardcover.

Cold-water coral ecosystems figure the formation of large seabed structures such as reefs and giant carbonate mounds; they represent unexplored paleo-environmental archives of earth history. Like their tropical cousins, cold-water coral ecosystems harbour rich species diversity.

'The major merit of this book is both to demonstrate the richness of cold water coral ecosystems and their ecological complexity but also their vulnerability, the gaps in our knowledge and the need to protect them rapidly, especially those found within the High Seas outside of any current jurisdiction.'.

About this book Following the exciting exploration of hot vent and cold seep ecosystems, the rediscovery of cold-water coral ecosystems with high-technology instrumentation is currently another hot topic in multidisciplinary marine research.

This book describes the past, present and future of cold water corals (CWCs) from the Mediterranean Sea, compiles the paleontological, geological, bio geographical, biological and ecological knowledge and offer answers and insights on what we know about Mediterranean CWCs.

Corals in the Mediterranean A team of scientists have carried out some interesting research and have provided us with incredible insights to the ecology, distribution, future trends and many more aspects of cold-water corals in the Mediterranean.

All this research is part of our new book “. This book’s focus is on those cold-water corals that form structural habitat.

We will consider how these species function as animals by reviewing what we know xi © Cambridge University Press Cambridge University Press - Cold-Water Corals: The Biology and Geology of Deep-Sea Coral Habitats.

Objective 1: To determine, through examination of returned cold-water coral specimens and photos, the taxon, and where possible the provenance of cold-water corals killed in New Zealand fisheries (for returned dead specimens). Not only are deep-sea corals more diverse than ocean scientists ever imagined, they are also amazingly old.

According to scientific estimates, one particular colony of gold coral (Gerardia sp.) found off the coast of Hawaii was about 2, years old. Marine researchers determined that another deep-sea coral colony in Hawaii—this one a black coral (Leiopathes sp.)—was about 4, years old.

Murray Roberts, Andrew Wheeler, André Freiwald, Stephen Cairns - Google Books There are more coral species in deep. The habitat of deep-water corals, also known as cold-water corals, extends to deeper, darker parts of the oceans than tropical corals, ranging from near the surface to the abyss, beyond 2, metres (6, ft) where water temperatures may be as cold as 4 °C (39 °F).Deep-water corals belong to the Phylum Cnidaria and are most often stony corals, but also include black and horny corals and.

What do we know about Mediterranean Cold (Deep)-Water coral ecosystems. In this book, specialists offer answers and insights with a series of chapters and short papers about the paleoecology, biology, physiology and ecology of the corals and other organisms that comprise these ecosystems.

Fabulous new book on cold water corals. From the publisher's announcement: Following the exciting exploration of hot vent and cold seep ecosystems, the rediscovery of cold-water coral ecosystems with high-technology instrumentation is currently another hot topic in multidisciplinary marine research.

Some of these cold-water corals construct banks or reefs as complex as those in tropical areas. Analyses have confirmed that some of these living banks and reefs are up to years old (Mikkelsen et al., ; Hovland et al., ), and geological records show that cold-water coral reefs have existed for millions of years.

Cold-water corals have been known since the first descriptions in the 18th century and the first deep-water research expeditions of the 19th century (Roberts et al., ). The presence of large.

Scleractinian cold-water corals (CWCs), such as Lophelia pertusa and Madrepora oculata, build complex frameworks and carbonate mound habitats in the deep-sea and are regarded as deep-sea.

Cold-water coral ecosystems are involved in the formation of large seabed structures such as reefs and giant carbonate mounds, and they represent unexploited paleo-environmental archives of earth history. Like their tropical cousins, cold-water coral ecosystems harbour rich species diversity.

PorteiroCited by: Structured on a temporal axis—Past, Present and Future—the reviews and selected study cases cover the cold and deep coral habitats known to date in the Mediterranean Basin.

This book illustrates and explains the deep Mediterranean coral habitats that might have originated similar thriving ecosystems in today’s Atlantic Ocean. 'Cold-Water Corals is the first comprehensive synthesis of one of the most active areas of current deep-sea research It is highly recommended to scientists and students looking for a basic introduction on the topic of cold-water corals.' Dr Sandra Brooke, Director of Coral Conservation Marine Conservation Biology Institute, USA.

'Roberts, Wheeler, Freiwald and Cairns' Cold-Water Corals is the finest review of the cold-water corals available now and likely for some time to come. Comprehensive and authoritative, it covers their exploration, geology, biology and ecology, human impacts, and their outlook in a warming, acidifying ocean.5/5(4).

Cold-water coral habitats are constituted by a great variety of anthozoan taxa, with reefs and gardens being homes for numerous invertebrates and fish species. In the cold temperate North Atlantic, some coral habitats such as Lophelia pertusa reefs, and Primnoa/Paragorgia dominated coral gardens occur on both sides of the Atlantic over a wide latitudinal : Lene Buhl-Mortensen, Pål Buhl-Mortensen.

Cold-water corals grow extremely slowly (a few to several mm per year) and can live for hundreds or thousands of years (e.g., Roberts et al., ; Watling et al., ;Carreiro-Silva et al., You might think of corals and picture a sunny and shallow tropical reef.

Yet recent advances in deep ocean exploration have revealed spectacular coral gardens in the dark ocean depths. Hundreds—and even thousands—of feet beyond the reach of sunlight, these unique corals and sponges are found off all our coasts. Ongoing exploration reveals new and familiar species thriving where we once.

Cold-water corals are associated with high local biodiversity, but despite their importance as ecosystem engineers, little is known about how these organisms will respond to projected ocean.

Biological connectivity of marine organisms that reproduce via planktonic larvae, such as cold-water corals, is regulated by the reproductive and life history traits of the organism and by physical characteristics of the marine environment into which offspring are released.
