The purpose of this website 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-present. In this first version of the guide, we have included frequency data from large-volume plankton pump samples taken between 1998 and 2004 and time-series sediment trap samples from 2004-2005. Trap frequency data are not available for polychaetes, as they are generally poorly preserved in the DMSO solution used in the traps. Later we plan to include data through fall 2007, including both pump and trap samples. ... [Information of the supplier]
