Insights into the abundance and diversity of abyssal megafauna in a polymetallic-nodule region in the eastern Clarion-Clipperton Zone
There is growing interest in mining polymetallic nodules in the abyssal Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ) in the Pacific. Nonetheless, benthic communities in this region remain poorly known. TheExpand

Bone-eating worms and wood-eating bivalves: characterising the ecology of deep-sea organic falls from multiple ocean basins
Large organic inputs to the deep seafloor such as the remains of whales or pieces of wood are termed ‘organic falls’. Despite over 30 years of research on these interesting deep-sea habitats, weExpand
