Slope-shelf faunal link and unreported diversity off Nova Scotia: Evidence from polychaete data

Abstract:

Deep-water sedimentary habitats off Nova Scotia have only rarely been explored. The topographically and oceanographically complex shelf of Nova Scotia harbours two interesting topographic features, Emerald Basin, a sedimentary habitat reaching greater depths (max of 270 m) than the surrounding shelf and the Gully, the largest canyon in NW Atlantic. Emerald Basin is exposed to upwellings of slope water and harbours predominantly deep-sea hexactinellid sponges. Such distributional pattern resem...
