A Reverse Taxonomic Approach to Assess Macrofaunal Distribution Patterns in Abyssal Pacific Polymetallic Nodule Fields
Heightened interest in the exploitation of deep seafloor minerals is raising questions on the consequences for the resident fauna. Assessing species ranges and determination of processes underlyingExpand

Meiobenthic copepod fauna of a marine cave (NW Mediterranean) closely resembles that of deep-sea communities
The 3PP marine cave near Marseille (NW Mediterranean) is at a depth of only 15 m. Nevertheless, the cave is a unique deep-sea-like habitat zone due to total darkness, lack of water circulation,Expand

Biogeography and population structure of predominant macrofaunal taxa (Annelida and Isopoda) in abyssal polymetallic nodule fields: implications for conservation and management
Abyssal plains of the Clarion Clipperton Fracture Zone (CCZ) in the NE Pacific Ocean probably harbour one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems. Gaining a basic understanding of the mechanismsExpand

Integrative species delimitation in the deep-sea genus Thaumastosoma Hessler, 1970 (Isopoda, Asellota, Nannoniscidae) reveals a new genus and species from the Atlantic and central Pacific abyss
Abstract Combined morphological and molecular analyses provided evidence for a new nannoniscid genus, Ketosoma gen. nov., including new species from abyssal waters of the equatorial NE AtlanticExpand

Timing of aerial dispersal is a heritable trait in the predatory mite Phytoseiulus persimilis
Dispersal is a main determinant of the dynamics and persistence of predator-prey metapopulations. Theoretical studies predict the existence of two types of dispersal strategies: the Milker, an earlyExpand
