2016 Environmental Evidence  
Mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) are tropical and sub-tropical reefs between 30 m and potentially >150 m depth, the maximum for photosynthetic hard corals.  ...  Recently, research has focused on the deep reef refugia hypothesis suggesting MCEs can be protected from shallow-water threats, potentially acting as a local source for re-colonisation of shallow reefs  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank the reviewers for their helpful comments. Especially for developing the methods and ensuring transparency.  ...
