What makes a mesophotic coral ecosystem?
In 2008, researchers recognised a new kind of tropical reef called mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs). However, with no guidance on the ecology that drives the vertical zonation of coral reefs, researchers used a fixed 30 m depth limit as a definition. 10 years on, research has progressed considerably. I will cover how machine-learning algorithms in the Caribbean have shown mesophotic communities are unique. In the Red Sea we moved from pattern to process, as we connected communities to light relationships. Finally, we have built a mechanistic, light-driven, model which can identify the limits of mesophotic communities globally.

We hope to see you there!
