How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

- Developing the next generation of sediment profile imaging camera/ planar optode system for use on autonomous platforms
The abyssal seafloor (3500–6000m) remains largely unexplored but with deep-sea mining imminent, anthropogenic impacts may soon reach abyssal communities. Thus, there is a growing need for baseline studies of biodiversity, ecosystem functioning, and connectivity in both potential mining and no-mining areas across the Clarion-Clipperton Zone (CCZ), a...
Sediment profiling imaging (SPI) is a versatile and widely used method to visually assess the quality of seafloor habitats (e.g., around fish farms and oil and gas rigs) and has been developed and used by both academics and consultancy companies over the last 50 years. Previous research has shown that inserting the flat viewport of an SPI camera in...
The sediment profile imaging (SPI) camera is widely used to survey the health of the Benthos, particularly those areas impacted by anthropogenic stressors. The apparent redox potential discontinuity (aRPD) is a visual indicator for the health of the Benthos and a chemical and biological hot spot. This may be impacted by lowering the SPI camera into...
The sediment profile imaging (SPI) camera system is widely used to evaluate the health of benthic communities particularly those impacted of anthropogenic stressors. Although it is a commercially and scientifically used tool, the influence of the SPI camera penetrating the sediment and the reliability of the data have not been studied yet. While p...
Around 150 million years ago, eusocial termites evolved from within the cockroaches, 50 million years before eusocial Hymenoptera, such as bees and ants, appeared. Here, we report the 2-Gb genome of the German cockroach, Blattella germanica, and the 1.3-Gb genome of the drywood termite Cryptotermes secundus. We show evolutionary signatures of termi...
Around 150 million years ago, eusocial termites evolved from within the cockroaches, 50 million years before eusocial Hymenoptera, such as bees and ants, appeared. Here, we report the first, 2GB genome of a cockroach, Blattella germanica , and the 1.3GB genome of the drywood termite, Cryptotermes secundus . We show evolutionary signatures of termit...
