  • Ancient DNA techniques : applications for deep-water corals 

    Waller, Rhian G.; Adkins, Jess F.; Robinson, Laura F.; Shank, Timothy M. (University of Miami - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, 2007-11-01)
    The potential applications of ancient DNA (aDNA) techniques have been realized relatively recently, and have been revolutionized by the advent of pCR techniques in the mid 1980s. Although these techniques have been proven ...
  • Cold-water coral distributions in the Drake Passage area from towed camera observations – initial interpretations 

    Waller, Rhian G.; Scanlon, Kathryn M.; Robinson, Laura F. (Public Library of Science, 2011-01-25)
    Seamounts are unique deep-sea features that create habitats thought to have high levels of endemic fauna, productive fisheries and benthic communities vulnerable to anthropogenic impacts. Many seamounts are isolated features, ...
  • Deep-sea scleractinian coral age and depth distributions in the northwest Atlantic for the last 225,000 years 

    Robinson, Laura F.; Adkins, Jess F.; Scheirer, Daniel S.; Fernandez, Diego P.; Gagnon, Alexander C.; Waller, Rhian G. (University of Miami - Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, 2007-11-01)
    Deep-sea corals have grown for over 200,000 yrs on the New England Seamounts in the northwest Atlantic, and this paper describes their distribution both with respect to depth and time. Many thousands of fossil scleractinian ...
