East Pacific Rise
The purpose of this guide is to assist researchers in the identification of larvae of benthic invertebrates at hydrothermal vents. Our work is based on plankton sampling at the East Pacific Rise 9-10°N vent field from 1991-2007, supplemented by benthic collections of juveniles. In addition to images and descriptions of the species, we included frequency data from large-volume plankton pump samples taken between 1998 and 2004 and time-series sediment trap samples from 2004-2005.

Initial settlement of marine invertebrate larvae : the role of passive sinking in a near-bottom turbulent flow environment Hannan, Cheryl Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1984-02)The hypothesis that planktonic larvae of benthic invertebrates sink through the water like passive particles in turbulent flows near the seabed was tested in the field using several groups of geometrically different ...
Jennings, Robert M. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2005-09)The overarching goal of this thesis was to investigate marine benthic invertebrate phylogenetics and population genetics, focused on the phylum Annelida. Recent expansions of molecular methods and the increasing diversity ...
Mullineaux, Lauren S.; McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Mills, Susan W.; Kosnyrev, V. K.; Thurnherr, Andreas M.; Ledwell, James R.; Lavelle, J. William (2013-03)The vertical position of larvae of vent species above a mid-ocean ridge potentially has a strong effect on their dispersal. Larvae may be advected upward in the buoyant vent plume, or move as a consequence of their buoyancy ...
