Cross-scale connectivity of microbenthic communities in a patchy network of habitats: The mesophotic biogenic habitats of the northern Adriatic Sea

Connectivity is a fundamental ecological property affecting stability, resilience and recovery of marine populations, in particular in networks of patchy habitats as the mesophotic biogenic habitats of the northern Adriatic Sea. This study performed connectivity simulations over different pelagic propagules
