Roark, Brendan; Guilderson, Thomas; Flood-Page, Sarah; Dunbar, Robert B; Ingram, B; Fallon, Stewart; McCulloch, Malcolm


Deep-sea coral communities have long been recognized by fisherman as areas that support large populations of commercial fish. As a consequence, many deep-sea coral communities are threatened by bottom trawling. Successful management and conservation of this widespread deep-sea habitat requires knowledge of the age and growth rates of deep-sea corals. These organisms also contain important archives of intermediate and deep-water variability, and are thus of interest in the context of decadal to...[Show more]
