  • Biodiversity and biogeography of hydrothermal vent species : thirty years of discovery and investigations 

    Ramirez-Llodra, Eva; Shank, Timothy M.; German, Christopher R. (Oceanography Society, 2007-03)
    The discovery of hydrothermal vents and the unique, often endemic fauna that inhabit them represents one of the most extraordinary scientific discoveries of the latter twentieth century. Not surprisingly, after just 30 ...
  • Deep, diverse and definitely different : unique attributes of the world's largest ecosystem 

    Ramirez-Llodra, Eva; Brandt, A.; Danovaro, R.; De Mol, B.; Escobar, E.; German, Christopher R.; Levin, Lisa A.; Arbizu, P. Martinez; Menot, L.; Buhl-Mortensen, P.; Narayanaswamy, B.
