There are extra coral species in deep, cold-waters than in tropical coral reefs. This broad-ranging therapy is the 1st to synthesise present knowing of every kind of cold-water coral, overlaying their ecology, biology, palaeontology and geology. starting with a background of study within the box, the authors describe the methods had to learn corals within the deep sea. they give thought to coral habitats created via stony scleractinian in addition to octocoral species. the significance of corals as long-lived geological buildings and palaeoclimate information is mentioned, as well as ways that they are often conserved. subject containers clarify strange techniques, and case experiences summarise major experiences, coral habitats or specific conservation measures. Written for execs and scholars of marine technological know-how, this article is more suitable by way of an in depth thesaurus, on-line assets, and a special choice of color pictures and illustrations of corals and the habitats they form.
