Funding

Financial support for this study was provided by the German Science Foundation to DE and GW (DFG ER 611/3-1, DFG Wo869/15-1, respectively). The LMU Mentoring and the HELGE AX:Son JOHNSON STIFTELSE provided funding for AS to visit HBOI (Florida, USA) and NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, Auckland and Wellington in New Zealand). Financial support for the R/V Seward Johnson/Johnson Sea Link I+II expedition was provided by HBOI. MK’s participation was funded by NIWA under Coasts and Oceans Research Programme 2 Marine Biological Resources: Discovery and definition of the marine biota of New Zealand (2016/2017 and 2017/2018 SCI). PC and SP received support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program through the SponGES project (Grant agreement No. 679849).
