Natural Physical Disturbances and Communities of Marine Soft Bottoms
Natural physical disturbances have been shown to be important in the organization of a variety of terrestrial and marine communities. Some workers have suggested that disturbance may play a similarExpand

Effects of bacterial exopolymer adhesion on the entrainment of sand
Abstract Flow velocity required to erode a bed of acid‐washed sand is increased by intergranular adhesion resulting from growth of the benthic marine bacterium Al‐teromonas atlantica. In general, weExpand

Influence of Introduced CO2 on Deep-Sea Metazoan Meiofauna
An experiment was performed to determine the effect of injected CO2 on the deep-sea (3200 m) meiofaunal community in the Monterey Canyon. Approximately 20 L of liquid CO2 was added to each of threeExpand

The nematode fauna of a deep-sea site exposed to strong near-bottom currents
Abstract Nematodes are the most abundant metazoans in marine soft-bottom habitats, yet little is known of their role in deep-sea communities. We describe the nematode fauna from 4626 m depth in theExpand

Abstract This paper gives an overview of the structure of a benthic community at 4626 m depth on the Nova Scotian continental rise. Here, abundances of polychaetes, bivalves, isopods and tanaids areExpand

On the place of origin of deep-sea lsopods
Biogeographic and phylogenetic data on the deep-sea isopod family Ilyarachnidae (Paraselloidea) document its origin and evolutionary radiation in the deep sea. The distribution of eyes amongExpand

Nematode tail-shape groups respond to environmental differences in the deep sea
Bien que la forme de la queue des Nematodes ait ete proposee pour constituer des groupes fonctionnels sur le plan ecologique, cette hypothese n'a pas ete testee. Nous avons utilise des donneesExpand

Harpacticoid dispersion patterns implications for deep sea diversity maintenance
Several models have been proposed to explain high macrofaunal diversity in the deep-sea benthos, but a mechanistic explanation of the maintenance of the enhanced diversity has not been demonstrated .Expand

Simulated sequestration of anthropogenic carbon dioxide at a deep-sea site: Effects on nematode abundance and biovolume
One proposal for ameliorating global warming is to sequester large amounts of carbon dioxide in the deep ocean, but the environmental consequences of sequestration for sediment-dwelling animals areExpand

Overview of SAX99: environmental considerations
A 1-km/sup 2/ area located 2 km off the Florida Panhandle (30/spl deg/22.6'N; 86/spl deg/38.7'W) was selected as the site to conduct high-frequency acoustic seafloor penetration, sedimentExpand
