Reefs of the Deep: The Biology and Geology of Cold-Water Coral Ecosystems
Advances reviewed here include the use of corals as paleoclimatic archives and their biogeological functioning, biodiversity, and biogeography, and the impacts of deep-water trawling and effects of ocean acidification.

Will human-induced changes in seawater chemistry alter the distribution of deep-sea scleractinian corals?
The answer to the title question is uncertain, as very few manipulative experiments have been conducted to test how deep-sea scleractinians (stony corals) react to changes in seawater chemistry.
The white coral community in the Central Mediterranean Sea - Revealed by ROV surveys
White coral communities consist of scleractinian corals that thrive in the ocean’s bathyal depths (~ 200–4000 m). In the Atlantic Ocean, white corals are known to form complex, three-dimensional
Reef-Forming Cold-Water Corals
Coral reefs are something we usually associate with warm, tropical waters and exotic fish, but not with the cold, deep and dark waters of the North Atlantic, where corals were regarded as oddities on
The Sula Reef Complex, Norwegian shelf
SummaryCool-water carbonates in the aphotic zone of deep shelf and continental margin settings in the Northeast Atlantic are produced by the deep-water coral reefs withLophelia pertusa as the major
Reefal coralline algal build-ups within the Arctic Circle: morphology and sedimentary dynamics under extreme environmental seasonality
ABSTRACT Carbonate frameworks secreted by phototrophic organisms within the Arctic Circle are not well documented. Underwater surveys of the inner-shelf off Troms, northern Norway (70"N), reveal
