Deep sea biodiversity and conservation

Submission status
Submission deadline

The deep sea is the oldest and largest biome on Earth. But only in recent decades have we been able to explore these dark and hidden depths, revealing an extraordinary diversity of habitats, from hydrothermal vents to seamounts, all bursting with unique, and often otherworldly, species. Due to its remoteness the deep sea remains largely undiscovered, but there is already alarming evidence of harmful anthropogenic impacts, from deep sea fishing, mining and other activities.

The Collection will offer a platform for the latest research focusing on deep sea biodiversity and conservation, coming from all areas and including interdisciplinary studies.
