"Larval" and juvenile cephalopods : a manual for their identification
This manual provides a practical guide to the identification of "larval" and juvenile cephalopods and presents characters for adult and young forms, keys, illustrations, distributional and biological information, and references to pertinent literature.
Man and the Last Great Wilderness: Human Impact on the Deep Sea
The analysis shows how the most significant anthropogenic activities that affect the deep sea have evolved from mainly disposal to exploitation and predicts that from now and into the future, increases in atmospheric CO2 and facets of climate change will have the most impact on deep-sea habitats and their fauna.
A proposed biogeography of the deep ocean floor
The global distribution of seamounts based on 30 arc seconds bathymetry data
Predicting global habitat suitability for stony corals on seamounts
Two modelling approaches developed for presence-only data were used to predict global habitat suitability for seamount scleractinians: maximum entropy modelling (Maxent) and environmental niche factor analysis (ENFA).
Sustainability of deep-sea fisheries
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.…

It is shown that deep-sea canyons such as the Kaikoura Canyon on the eastern New Zealand margin can sustain enormous biomasses of infaunal megabenthic invertebrates over large areas, and is one of the most productive habitats described so far in the deep sea.

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 have…
