DOSI Deep-Sea Round-Up
A new study highlighting New Zealand’s diversity hotspot for glass sponges makes the local media, while two of the major effects of climate change on deep-ocean habitats are considered in new studies: the impact of warming seas on cold-water corals, and the variation in phytodetritus compositions, and hence food availability, on abyssal benthic biota.
New opportunities include an interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship opportunity at an English-speaking university in Japan, a quantitative marine ecology role in the Falklands and a tenure track assistant professor at LeHigh University in Pennsylvania. Plus don’t miss out on an opportunity to collaborate on an upcoming feature documentary on deep-sea taxonomy (which, we might add, has received funding from the Sundance Institute).
