    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Strong depth-related zonation of megabenthos on a rocky continental margin (∼700–4000 m) off southern Tasmania, Australia 

      Thresher, Ronald E.; Althaus, Franziska; Adkins, Jess F.; Gowlett-Holmes, Karen; Alderslade, Phil; Dowdney, Jo; Cho, Walter W.; Gagnon, Alexander C.; Staples, David; McEnnulty, Felicity; Williams, Alan (Public Library of Science, 2014-01-22)
      Assemblages of megabenthos are structured in seven depth-related zones between ~700 and 4000 m on the rocky and topographically complex continental margin south of Tasmania, southeastern Australia. These patterns emerge ...
