Bamboo corals belong to a species rich and abundant group of octocorals that occur throughout the world's oceans, primarily in the deep-sea. Their study through morphological, ecological and evolutionary approaches has been problematic because of the extreme environments many of them inhabit and therefore the difficulty of obtaining good quality samples. However, new undescribed species have been commonly collected as part of invertebrate by-catch studies from commercial fisheries. In this… CONTINUE READING
