Oysters are important ecosystem engineers best known to produce large bioconstructions at shallow depth, whilst offshore deep-subtidal oyster reefs are less widely known. Oyster reefs engineered by Neopycnodonte cochlear (family Gryphaeidae) occur at various sites in the Mediterranean Sea, between 40 and 130 m water depths. Remotely Operated Vehicle surveys provide new insights on this rather neglected reef types with respect to their shape, dimensions and associated biodiversity. We suggest tha...

Abstract The Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), introduced in June 2008, was adopted to achieve a Good Environmental Status (GES) in the EU's marine waters and to protect resources of socio-economic interest. The MSFD exerts to the marine area over which a Member State exercises jurisdictional rights in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), including the deep-sea waters, seafloor and sub-seafloor of the Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ). However, cur...

In the Recent, brachiopods only seldom occur in benthic communities. A biotope dominated by Megerlia truncata was identified in 2013 by exploration of the south‐easternmost Adriatic margin by Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Emerging rocky substrates next to the shelf break at approximately 120 m appear intensively exploited by this eurybathic rhynchonelliformean brachiopod, attaining a population of more than 300 individuals per m². Calcareous red algae are almost ubiquitous at this site and pr...

Abstract The Bari Canyon System (BCS) is located on the southwestern Adriatic margin, in the Central Mediterranean Sea indenting the continental shelf at approximately 200 m. It is characterized by a rough morphology, with two main parallel branches and a channel–levee complex with subvertical flanks, and a variable substrate with rocky outcrops along the canyon flanks. The geological context and the presence of two different dense water masses, the Levantine Intermediate Water (flowing along sl...

Abstract The Tricase Canyon is a 20-km-long submarine canyon, incising the southernmost Apulian margin at the boundary between the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, in the Mediterranean basin. The canyon indents the continental margin at depth of –120 m and reaches a maximum depth of approximately –900 m. The Tricase Canyon is disconnected from direct fluvial system and has no other tributaries. The shallower area of the canyon is generally characterized by a sparse cnidarian occurrence which includes P...

Ocean warming is expected to impinge detrimentally on marine ecosystems worldwide up to impose extreme environmental conditions capable to potentially jeopardize the good ecological status of scleractinian coral reefs at shallow and bathyal depths. The integration of literature records with newly acquired Remotely Operated Vehicle data provides an overview of the geographic distribution of the temperate coral Dendrophyllia cornigera spanning the eastern Atlantic Ocean to the whole Mediterranean ...

Abstract Biodiversity of coral forests and occurrence of Derelict Fishing Gears (DFGs) have been assessed in canyon systems of the western Ligurian Sea (Dramont, Monaco, Bordighera, Arma di Taggia and Bergeggi) exposed to different anthropic pressures. Arborescent cnidarians were elected as representative species due to their role as structuring organisms and their vulnerability to DFGs damage; hence, their occurrence, density and distribution were correlated to the presence of DFGs. The canyon ...

Abstract The coral Li/Mg temperature proxy is revisited through an in-depth trace element analysis of scleractinians collected live from tropical to polar environments. The dataset consists of Li/Ca, Mg/Ca, Sr/Ca and Li/Mg ratios from 64 coral specimens belonging to 8 different taxa, including both reef-building zooxanthellate and cold-water non-zooxanthellate species, from a wide range of water temperature (−1 to 29.5 °C), salinity (34.71 to 38.61), and depth (3 to 670 m). Our results showed th...
