Fine Scale Assemblage Structure of Benthic Invertebrate Megafauna on the North Pacific Seamount Mokumanamana

Changes in benthic megafaunal assemblage structure have been found across gradients of environmental variables for many deep-sea habitats, but patterns remain under-investigated on seamounts. To

Deep-sea biodiversity at the extremes of the Salas y Gómez and Nazca ridges with implications for conservation

This study supports mounting evidence that the Salas y Gómez and Nazca ridges are areas of high biodiversity and high conservation value and should be comprehensively protected using the best available conservation measures to ensure that this region remains a globally unique biodiversity hotspot.

Seascape topography slows predicted range shifts in fish under climate change

Shifts in marine species distributions are occurring rapidly in response to climate change, yet predicted rates of change are partly dependent on the data used to estimate species distributions.

Marine ecoregions and subecoregions within Indo‐West Australian waters: A statistical approach based on species distributions

The Marine Ecoregions of the World (MEOW) system delineates the oceans into 232 ecoregions. Here, we aimed to evaluate the suitability of this system to represent species distributions within



Structure of the deep demersal fish fauna off Newfoundland

Bottom trawls on the Newfoundland continental slope at depths from 204 to 2325 m near Carson Submarine Canyon took 4222 individuals in 39 species of demersal fishes, implying ongoing invasion of the deep sea by fishes from the continental shelves.

Diversity and endemism of the benthic seamount fauna in the southwest Pacific

The discovery of more than 850 macro- and megafaunal species from seamounts in the Tasman Sea and southeast Coral Sea, of which 29–34% are new to science and potential seamount endemics have substantial implications for the conservation of this fauna.

Are deep-sea demersal fish assemblages globally homogenous? Insights from seamounts

Deep-sea fishes have been poorly sampled globally, and overall knowledge of demersal fish distributions and the drivers of community composition and diversity remain limited. Here, we used nine

Deep-Sea Fish Distribution Varies between Seamounts: Results from a Seamount Complex off New Zealand

The study showed that fish assemblages on seamounts can vary over very small spatial scales, in the order of several km, and adds to a growing literature suggesting that faunal communities on seamsounts may be populated from a broad regional species pool, yet show considerable variation on individual seamountS.

Seamount benthic macrofauna off southern tasmania: community structure and impacts of trawling

The benthic macrofauna of a group of small seamounts south of Tasmania was surveyed with a dredge and camera to assess the impact of trawling for orange roughy (Hoplostethus atlanti- cus;
