The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
BACKGROUND The question of how many marine species exist is important because it provides a metric for how much we do and do not know about life in the oceans. We have compiled the first register ofExpand
Anthozoa from the northern Mid-Atlantic Ridge and Charlie-Gibbs Fracture Zone
Abstract An annotated list of deep-sea Anthozoa of the orders Actiniaria, Antipatharia, Scleractinia, Alcyonacea and Pennatulacea collected on the G.O. Sars MAR-ECO cruise to the Mid-Atlantic RidgeExpand
Shallow-Water Sea Anemones (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Actiniaria) and Tube Anemones (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Ceriantharia) of the Galápagos Islands1,2
ABSTRACT We provide the first inventory of members of orders Actiniaria (sea anemones sensu stricto) and Ceriantharia (tube anemones) from the Galápagos Islands. Based on observations and collectionsExpand
On Isarachnanthus from Central Atlantic and Caribbean region with notes on Isarachnactis lobiancoi (Carlgren, 1912)
Isarachnanthus specimens from different localities in the Central Atlantic and Caribbean regions were studied. All examined specimens belong to one widely distributed shallow water species,Expand
CeDAMar global database of abyssal biological sampling
The Census of the Diversity of Abyssal Marine Life (CeDAMar), a division of the Cen- sus of Marine Life, has compiled the first comprehensive global database of biological samples taken in theExpand
On the taxonomy and presumable evolutionary pathways of planktonic larvae of Ceriantharia (Anthozoa, Cnidaria)
After investigation of the type specimens of 11 genera of ceriantharian larvae, it was concluded that the overwhelming majority of planktonic forms should be referred to the family Arachnactidae.Expand
Actiniaria and Ceriantharia of the Azores (Cnidaria Anthozoa)
The common shallow water species of sea anemones (Actiniaria) and tube anemones (Ceriantharia) of the Azores are listed. Eight species of sea anemones are mentioned, the species Cereus pedunculatusExpand
Black corals (Anthozoa: Antipatharia) of the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone
The antipatharian fauna of the Clarion-Clipperton Fracture Zone is discussed. Five species of black corals from three genera were identified in collections from this area, including one new species.Expand
A new species of Leiopathes (Anthozoa: Antipatharia) from the Great Meteor seamount (North Atlantic)
Leiopathes montana, a new species previously reported as L. glaberrima (Esper), is described from the plateau of the Great Meteor seamount (North Atlantic) at depth 300–335 m. The new species can beExpand
Modifications of corallum morphology in black corals as an effect of associated fauna
Antipatharians, or black corals, are colonial anthozoans characterized by a chitinous skeletal axis covered to a varying degree with small spines. Important taxonomic features in this group are theExpand
