Are spatial variations in the diets of hydrothermal fauna linked to local environmental conditions
It is suggested that vent fluid characteristics, by influencing microbial production, are key factors in the variation of local carbon sources at vents. Expand
Biodiversity patterns, environmental drivers and indicator species on a high-temperature hydrothermal edifice, Mid-Atlantic Ridge
This study assessed the composition, abundance and diversity of 12 benthic faunal assemblages from various locations on the Eiffel Tower edifice and investigated the role of key environmental conditions on the distribution of macro- and meiofaunal species at small spatial scales. Expand
The eyes of lanternfishes (Myctophidae, Teleostei): Novel ocular specializations for vision in dim light
It is confirmed that myctophids possess several visual adaptations for dim‐light conditions, including enlarged eyes, an aphakic gap, a tapetum lucidum, and a pure rod retina with high densities of long photoreceptors. Expand
Microhabitat partitioning correlates with opsin gene expression in coral reef cardinalfishes (Apogonidae)
It is suggested that, although most cardinalfishes are nocturnal foragers, their visual systems—and possibly those of other (reef) fishes—have also adapted to the light intensity and the light spectrum of their preferred diurnal microhabitats. Expand
