Deep-sea biology

The deep ocean is the largest ecosystem on Earth and yet the least known... many surprises lie hidden in this frontier of exploration of life on Earth

The deep ocean is the largest ecosystem on Earth and the least known. The discovery of special biological communities living around hydrothermal vents, hydrocarbon seeps, gas hydrates and forming cold-water coral reefs have demonstrated that there are still many surprises lying hidden in the depths. These habitats have been found to harbour a unique diversity of animals and have even changed our conceptions of how life began on Earth and where it may exist in the universe.

At this meeting, leading deep-sea biologists from the UK will present some of the latest research findings from this frontier of exploration of life on Earth.
