  • Larvae from afar colonize deep-sea hydrothermal vents after a catastrophic eruption 

    Mullineaux, Lauren S.; Adams, Diane K.; Mills, Susan W.; Beaulieu, Stace E. (2010-01-29)
    The planktonic larval stage is a critical component of life history in marine benthic species because it confers the ability to disperse, potentially connecting remote populations and leading to colonization of new sites. ...
  • Larval dispersal : vent life in the water column 

    Adams, Diane K.; Arellano, Shawn M.; Govenar, Breea (The Oceanography Society, 2012-03)
    Visually striking faunal communities of high abundance and biomass cluster around hydrothermal vents, but these animals don't spend all of their lives on the seafloor. Instead, they spend a portion of their lives as tiny ...
  • Larval dispersal between hydrothermal vent habitats 

    Kim, Stacy L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1996-01)
    Hydrothermal vents are isolated, short-term habitats that support unique biotic assemblages with relatively high biomass utilizing an unusual energy source. How these communities establish themselves and maintain species ...
  • Larval dispersion along an axially symmetric mid-ocean ridge 

    McGillicuddy, Dennis J.; Lavelle, J. William; Thurnherr, Andreas M.; Kosnyrev, V. K.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (2009-12-22)
    We investigated planktonic larval transport processes along an axially symmetric mid-ocean ridge with characteristics similar to that of the East Pacific Rise (EPR) segment at 9-10°N. The hydrodynamic basis for this study ...
  • Larval ecology and synchronous reproduction of two crustacean species : Semibalanus balanoides in New England, USA and Gecarcinus quadratus in Veraguas, Panama 

    Gyory, Joanna (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2011-02)
    The environmental cues for synchronous reproduction were investigated for two highly abundant, ecologically important crustacean species: the temperate acorn barnacle, Semibalanus balanoides, and the tropical terrestrial ...
  • Larval responses to turbulence and temperature in a tidal inlet: Habitat selection by dispersing gastropods? 

    Fuchs, Heidi L.; Solow, Andrew R.; Mullineaux, Lauren S. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2010-06)
    Marine larval dispersal is affected by hydrodynamic transport and larval behavior, but little is known about how behavior affects large-scale patterns of dispersal and recruitment. Intertidal habitats are characterized by ...
  • Larval settlement in flocculated particulates 

    Zimmer, Cheryl Ann; Starczak, Victoria R.; Arch, Victoria S.; Zimmer, Richard K. (Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2008-03)
    Planktonic larval settlement can be a major determinant of population and community dynamics. Settlement templates of benthic invertebrates have been attributed to biological, chemical, and hydrodynamic mechanisms. Completely ...
  • Larval transport and dispersal in the coastal ocean and consequences for population connectivity 

    Pineda, Jesus; Hare, Jonathan A.; Sponaungle, Su (Oceanography Society, 2007-09)
    Many marine species have small, pelagic early life stages. For those species, knowledge of population connectivity requires understanding the origin and trajectories of dispersing eggs and larvae among subpopulations. ...
  • Latitudinal and taxonomic patterns in the feeding ecologies of fish larvae : a literature synthesis 

    Llopiz, Joel K. (2012-03-20)
    The longtime focus on factors that influence the survival of marine fish larvae has yielded an extensive number of studies on larval fish diets and feeding success. In light of a recent increase in such studies within lower ...
