Seriatopora Diversity Preserved in Upper Mesophotic Coral Ecosystems in Southern Japan

Abstract

Coral reefs worldwide are facing increasing stress due to drastic changes in their environment. Mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) have been considered as a potential refuge from several major stressors, such as warm-water bleaching events. However, their role as a subsequent source of larvae remains unclear for many species, particularly as genetic… (More)
