Locomotion of marine invertebrate larvae: a review
Marine invertebrate larvae swim by using cilia or muscles, or a combination of these, and, owing to the small Reynold's numbers that operate in this size range, their movements are governed by viscous forces rather than inertial ones.
Larval dispersal potential of the tubeworm Riftia pachyptila at deep-sea hydrothermal vents
The lifespan presented for R. pachyptila larvae can now be used to predict dispersal under current regimes at other hydrothermal vent sites, and is integrated into physiological, developmental and hydrodynamic data to estimate the dispersal potential.
Reproduction and dispersal at vents and cold seeps

The authors' knowledge of reproductive biology in vent and seep organisms remains fragmentary, but with molecular and biochemical techniques, emerging larval culture techniques, and increased sampling effort, the pieces of the jigsaw will eventually form an overall picture.
Fixed, free, and fixed: the fickle phylogeny of extant Crinoidea (Echinodermata) and their Permian-Triassic origin.
Temperature limits to fertilization and early development in the tropical sea urchin Echinometra lucunter
In situ measurement of survival and growth of Lophelia pertusa in the northern Gulf of Mexico
This study represents the first direct measurement of in situ growth for this species and illustrated double growth centers, which introduces an additional level of complexity when assessing growth through lateral banding patterns.
The cellular basis of photobehavior in the tufted parenchymella larva of demosponges
The mechanisms by which light elicits a phototactic response in sponge larvae remain poorly understood. Here we investigate histological and behavioral aspects of the photoresponse in parenchymella…
Reproductive success in large populations: empirical measures and theoretical predictions of fertilization in the sea biscuit Clypeaster rosaceus
The population biology and genetics of the deep–sea spider crab, Encephaloides armstrongi Wood–Mason 1891 (Decapoda: Majidae)
The most likely explanations for the observations of the present study are: the population of Encephaloides armstrongi located at 150 m depth represented a juvenile cohort that is genetically distinct from deeper populations; female E. arm Strongi exhibits gender-biased dispersal and that the crabs collected between 300 m and 650 m depth formed spawning aggressions.
