Biology and ecology of the “Pompeii worm” (Alvinella pompejana Desbruyères and Laubier), a normal dweller of an extreme deep-sea environment: A synthesis of current knowledge and recent developments
Abstract Alvinella pompejana, the “Pompeii worm” lives on active hydrothermal edifices at deep-sea vents of the East Pacific Rise. The physical and chemical patterns of its microhabitat wereExpand
Reproductive biology, sexual dimorphism, and population structure of the deep sea hydrothermal vent scale-worm, Branchipolynoe seepensis (Polychaeta: Polynoidae)
The polychaete family Polynoidae (scale-worms) is well-represented at deep sea hydrothermal vents. Most species are free-living in a wide range of habitats: from high-temperature hydrothermalExpand
Morphology, ultrastructure and functional anatomy of the branchial organ of Terebellides stroemii (Polychaeta: Trichobranchidae) and remarks on the systematic position of the genus Terebellides
Morphologie, ultrastructure et anatomie fonctionnelle de l'organe branchial de Terebellides stroemii (Polychaeta: Trichobranchidae) et remarques sur la position systematique du genre Terebellides. LaExpand
The gas transfer system in alvinellids (Annelida Polychaeta, Terebellida). Anatomy and ultrastructure of the anterior circulatory system and characterization of a coelomic, intracellular, haemoglobin
Chez Alvinella pompejana, A. caudata et P. grasslei, le sang est propulse dans les branchies par un coeur branchial, dans lequel un corps cardiaque en forme de baguette accroit la force de propulsionExpand
A new member of Nerillidae (Annelida: Polychaeta), Xenonerilla bactericola gen. et sp. nov., collected off California, USA
Un nouveau Nerillidae, Xenonerilla bactericola, nouveau genre et nouvelle espece, est decrit des sediments hypoxiques du Bassin de Santa Barbara, au large de la Californie sud. L'espece n'estExpand

Functional anatomy of the respiratory system of Branchipolynoe species (Polychaeta, Polynoidae), commensal with Bathymodiolus species (Bivalvia, Mytilidae) from deep-sea hydrothermal vents
Abstract The gills of three species of Branchipolynoe have been studied in order to better understand the morphological and anatomical adaptations of their respiratory system. These Polynoidae liveExpand
Ultrastructure of Presumed Ocelli in Parenterodrilus taenioides (Polychaeta, Protodrilidae) and their Phylogenetic Significance
Three different types of presumed unpigmented ocelli have been found in the anterior end of Parenterodrilus taenioides, a small gutless interstitial polychaete. The type-1 ocelli are located in theExpand
Sexual dimorphism in Paralvinella grasslei, a polychaete annelid from deep-sea hydrothermal vents
Les Alvinellidae, comme la plupart des Polychetes, sont gonochoriques. Chez Paralvinella grasslei les mâles presentent, sur la region cephalique, des caracteres sexuels externes que ne possedent pasExpand
