      Cold-water corals have been known since the 18th century. Only recently, as fishery and oil exploration activities in deeper waters have increased, have developments in acoustic survey techniques and access to submersibles revealed the scale and abundance of cold-water coral ecosystems (1, 2).Corals occur individually, as isolated colonies, in small patch reefs several meters Cited by: Structured on a temporal axis—Past, Present and Future—the reviews and selected study cases cover the cold and deep coral habitats known to date in the Mediterranean Basin. This book illustrates and explains the deep Mediterranean coral habitats that might have originated similar thriving ecosystems in today’s Atlantic Ocean.

    Cold-water corals are an important part of deep-water ecosystems. • Research on cold-water corals has grown rapidly from the mids. • Integrated interdisciplinary research is essential to explain their ecology. • They have been degraded by trawling and are threatened by ocean warming and acidification. •Cited by:   The impact of bottom trawling on cold-water corals (CWC) has been thoroughly studied and shown to be long-lasting; however the effects of bottom longlining on CWC ecosystems have received little by:

Warm-water coral reefs, for example, occupy shallow sunlit, warm, and alkaline waters in order to grow and calcify at the high rates necessary to build and maintain their calcium carbonate structures.

Cold-Water Corals and Ecosystems (Erlangen Earth Conference Series) 1st Edition by André Freiwald (Editor), J. Murray Roberts (Editor). Cold-Water Corals and Ecosystems. Following the exciting exploration of hot vent and cold seep ecosystems, the rediscovery of cold-water coral ecosystems with high-technology instrumentation is currently another hot topic in multidisciplinary marine research.

Conventionally, coral reefs are regarded as restricted to warm and well-illuminated tropical seas, not associated with cold and dark waters of. Fabulous new book on cold water corals. From the publisher's announcement: Following the exciting exploration of hot vent and cold seep ecosystems, the rediscovery of cold-water coral ecosystems with high-technology instrumentation is currently another hot topic in multidisciplinary marine research.

Following the exciting exploration of hot vent and cold seep ecosystems, the rediscovery of cold-water coral ecosystems with high-technology instrumentation is currently another hot topic in multidisciplinary marine research. Conventionally, coral reefs are regarded as restricted to warm and well-illuminated tropical seas, not associated with cold and dark waters of higher latitudes.

This broad-ranging treatment is the first to synthesise current understanding of all types of cold-water coral, covering their ecology, biology, palaeontology and geology. Beginning with a history of research in the field, the authors describe the approaches needed to study corals in the deep by: Cold-water coral ecosystems are involved in the formation of large seabed structures such as reefs and giant carbonate mounds, and they represent unexploited paleo-environmental archives of Earth history.

Like their tropical cousins, cold-water coral ecosystems harbour rich species diversity. What do we know about Mediterranean Cold (Deep)-Water coral ecosystems. In this book, specialists offer answers and insights with Cold-Water Corals and Ecosystems book series of chapters and short papers about the paleoecology, biology, physiology and ecology of the corals and other organisms that comprise these ecosystems.

For a more complete and perhaps comprehensive review of reef occurrences across the globe, I recommend the book by Freiwald and Roberts (), 'Cold-water corals and ecosystems. Introduction. by The Ocean Portal Team. It may be the last place you’d expect to find corals—up to 6, m (20, ft) below the ocean’s surface, where the water is icy cold and the light dim or absent.

Yet believe it or not, lush coral gardens thrive here. Coral reefs are some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Coral polyps, the animals primarily responsible for building reefs, can take many forms: large reef building colonies, graceful flowing fans, and even small, solitary nds of species of corals have been discovered; some live in warm, shallow, tropical seas and others in the cold, dark depths of the ocean.

"Roberts, Wheeler, Freiwald and Cairns' Cold-Water Corals is the finest review of the cold-water corals available now and likely for some time to come.

Comprehensive and authoritative, it covers their exploration, geology, biology and ecology, human impacts. Cold-water corals are found at temperatures ranging from 4 to 13 °C and depths between 50 and m depths. 20 Most of the reef-forming cold-water corals, such as the Lophelia pertusa reefs in the NE Atlantic, are found on the upper part of the continental slope and on seamounts.

Reef-forming corals are estimated to cover an area of ca. Author: Eva Ramirez-Llodra. This broad-ranging treatment is the first to synthesise current understanding of all types of cold-water coral, covering their ecology, biology, palaeontology and geology.

Beginning with a history of research in the field, the authors describe the approaches needed to study corals in the deep sea. Alex Rogers is a marine biologist working on the ecology and conservation of marine ecosystem. Most of his research has focused on Antarctic and deep-sea habitats, including seamounts, hydrothermal vents and cold-water corals.

COLD-WATER CORALS: THE BIOLOGY AND GEOLOGY OF DEEP-SEA CORAL HABITATS There are more coral species in deep, cold waters than in tropical coral reefs. This broad-ranging treatment is the first to synthesise current understanding of all types of cold-water coral, covering their ecology, biology, palaeontology and geology.
