Funiculina quadrangularis (Pennatulacea) presence and absence extracted from video, from Fabri et al, 2014

Species distribution

Soft mud facies with Funiculina quadrangularis is an essential habitat for certain crustacean species (Parapenaeus longirostris and Nephrops norvegicus). These habitats are potentially vulnerable as they are targeted by fisheries. These VME fauna seem to have been swept away by repeated trawling. Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VME) in the deep Mediterranean Sea have been identified by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean as consisting of communities of Scleractinia (Lophelia pertusa and Madrepora oculata), Pennatulacea (Funiculina quadrangularis) and Alcyonacea (Isidella elongata). This dataset concerns video data recorded in the heads of French Mediterranean canyons. Quantitative observations were extracted from 101 video films recorded during the MEDSEACAN cruise in 2009 (Aamp/Comex), in addition to 12 Ifremer dives. Species recognized in the video films were recorded from 180 to 700 m depth, and were mapped using GIS. Funiculina quadrangularis was rarely observed…

Data origin:

Species distribution was mapped along dive tracks from video studies of each dive, using the Ifremer underwater vehicle data post-processing software “Adelie“ (http://www. ifremer.fr/adelie) including an extension for the ArcGIS 9.3 software suite (© ESRI).
