This week, a new paper in Nature was published by members of INDEEP’s Working Group 2:
Woolley S., Tittensor D., Dunstan P., Guillera-Arroita G., Lahoz-Monfort J., Wintle B., Worm B. & O’Hara T. Deep-sea diversity patterns are shaped by energy availability, Nature, doi:10.1038/nature17937
This work is an output of the project ‘National maps of biodiversity and connectivity’ of the Marine Biodiversity Research Hub and Environmental Decisions Hub, funded through the Commonwealth National Environmental Research Program (NERP) and administered through the Australian Government’s Department of Environment. This work is also a product of the International Network for Scientific Investigations of Deep-Sea Ecosystems (INDEEP) working group on biogeography. The Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (CEED) provided travel funding that enabled collaboration between the University of Melbourne, Museum Victoria and Dalhousie University.
