- A review of approaches for classifying benthic habitats and evaluating habitat qualityRobert J Diaz
Biological Sciences, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William and Mary, P O Box 1346, Route 1208, Greate Road, Gloucester Point, VA 23062, USA
J Environ Manage 73:165-81. 2004..The problem of data density mismatch between physical and biological methods will likely not be solved until acoustic methods can routinely resolve the elusive biological components that make a physical substrate a habitat...
- Overview of hypoxia around the worldR J Diaz
School of Marine Science, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William and Mary, Gloucester Pt, VA 23062, USA
J Environ Qual 30:275-81. 2001..It appears that many ecosystems that are now severely stressed by hypoxia may be near or at a threshold of change or collapse (loss of fisheries, loss of biodiversity, alteration of food webs)...
- Spreading dead zones and consequences for marine ecosystemsRobert J Diaz
Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William and Mary, Gloucester Point, VA 23062, USA
Science 321:926-9. 2008..Dead zones have now been reported from more than 400 systems, affecting a total area of more than 245,000 square kilometers, and are probably a key stressor on marine ecosystems...
- Hypoxia and benthic community recovery in Korean coastal watersHyun Sig Lim
Department of Marine Resources, Mokpo National University, Muan, Chonnam 534 729, Republic of Korea
Mar Pollut Bull 52:1517-26. 2006..Hypoxic and near anoxic conditions resulted in mass mortality in Chinhae Bay and Youngsan River estuarine bay, but communities did partially recover after return to normoxic conditions despite delayed recolonization...
- First insights into the biodiversity and biogeography of the Southern Ocean deep seaAngelika Brandt
Zoological Museum Hamburg, Martin Luther King Platz 3, 20146 Hamburg, Germany
Nature 447:307-11. 2007..Our findings challenge suggestions that deep-sea diversity is depressed in the Southern Ocean and provide a basis for exploring the evolutionary significance of the varied biogeographic patterns observed in this remote environment...
