  • Chemosynthetic communities in the deep sea : ecological studies 

    Van Dover, Cindy L. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-05)
    Deep-sea benthic communities dependent on chemosynthetic primary production are associated with areas of active venting of chemically-modified seawater. Patterns in the distribution of species that occur at hydrothermal ...
  • Evolutionary and ecological genomics in deep-sea organisms 

    Herrera Monroy, Santiago (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2015-02)
    Hydrothermal vents and coral ecosystems are conspicuous biological hotspots in the deep-sea. These ecosystems face increasing threats from human activities. Having thorough taxonomic inventories as well as understanding ...
  • Faunal biogeography, community structure, and genetic connectivity of North Atlantic seamounts 

    Cho, Walter W. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-09)
    The mechanisms of faunal dispersal across ocean basins are key unknowns toward understanding of the modern biogeography and biodiversity of deep-sea fauna. Seamounts are considered to play a defining role in faunal ...
  • The importance of fine-scale flow processes and food availability in the maintenance of soft-sediment communities 

    Snelgrove, Paul V. R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-01)
    Although the association between soft-sediment invertebrates and a specific sediment type has been documented for many habitats, most studies have been correlative and have failed to convincingly demonstrate any single ...
