Man and the Last Great Wilderness: Human Impact on the Deep Sea
The deep sea, the largest ecosystem on Earth and one of the least studied, harbours high biodiversity and provides a wealth of resources. Although humans have used the oceans for millennia,Expand

Ocean climate anomalies and the ecology of the North Sea
Long-term changes in the plankton of the North Sea are investigated using data from the continuous plankton recorder (CPR) survey. During the last 4 decades, there appears to have been 2 largeExpand

Predicting global habitat suitability for stony corals on seamounts
Aim Globally, species distribution patterns in the deep sea are poorly resolved, with spatial coverage being sparse for most taxa and true absence data missing. Increasing human impacts on deep-seaExpand

Effect of biodeposits from mussel culture on macroinvertebrate assemblages at sites of different hydrodynamic regime.
The present study examined for differences in macroinvertebrate assemblage composition inside and outside of mussel farm sites experiencing different hydrodynamic regimes. Multivariate analysisExpand

Are macroinvertebrate communities influenced by seagrass structural complexity
A study was undertaken within a sub-tidal Zostera marina seagrass bed (Devon, U.K.), with the aim of elucidating the relationship between seagrass structural complexity and the size and compositionExpand

The ecology of seamounts: structure, function, and human impacts.
In this review of seamount ecology, we address a number of key scientific issues concerning the structure and function of benthic communities, human impacts, and seamount management and conservation.Expand

The impacts of deep-sea fisheries on benthic communities: a review
Deep-sea fisheries operate globally throughout the world's oceans, chiefly targeting stocks on the upper and mid-continental slope and offshore seamounts. Major commercial fisheries occur, or haveExpand

Seagrass complexity hierarchies: Influence on fish groups around the coast of Jersey (English Channel)
Recent research has identified a need for seagrass habitat management plans to be based on landscape-level approaches as they offer a more appropriate scale for large mobile fauna than smallerExpand

Submarine canyons: hotspots of benthic biomass and productivity in the deep sea
Submarine canyons are dramatic and widespread topographic features crossing continental and island margins in all oceans. Canyons can be sites of enhanced organic-matter flux and deposition throughExpand
