6th International Symposium on Deep-Sea Corals

Conference

(Conference: 11-16 September, 2016) The ISDSC6 will bring together scientists, industry specialists, students and managers with recent, state‐of‐the‐art knowledge on the distribution, linkages, ecosystem function and biodiversity of cold‐water corals and their habitats. Our current knowledge and outlook of the driving factors and consequences of past and present biogeography and ecological constraints, climate change, natural and anthropogenic impacts, and the conservation and management of cold-water coral ecosystems will be discussed. The latest topical research on ocean acidification, biogeography, larval dispersal, genetic connectivity and evolution, autecology, reproduction, predictive habitat modeling, (paleo) productivity, new proxies in paleoceanography, conservation strategies, national and international management, and the design and development of marine protected areas will be featured.
