Composition and distribution of macro‐ and meiobenthos around sublittoral hydrothermal vents in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand
The abundance and diversity of bottom fauna decreased with an increase of bottom temperature and the abundance of meiofauna increased closer to the vents, nematodes being dominant. Expand
North Pacific Species of the Genus Solemya Lamarck, 1818 (Bivalvia: Solemyidae), with Notes on Acharax johnsoni (Dall, 1891)
Five species of the genus Solemya are recognized from the North Pacific and the gutless S. reidi from the northeastern Pacific is synonymized with S. pervernicosa from the northwestern Pacific. Expand
Effect of shallow-water hydrothermal venting on the biota of Matupi Harbour (Rabaul Caldera, New Britain Island, Papua New Guinea)
Abstract Coastal hydrothermal vents in the depth range 0–27 m were studied in Matupi Harbour, a marine bight that is partly isolated from the open sea on the north–east coast of New Britain, PapuaExpand
Vesicomyinae (Bivalvia: Vesicomyidae) of the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench and adjacent abyssal regions
For the first time for a vesicomyin bivalve molecular data is given for a species with an explicit morphological description and unambiguous taxonomic affiliation and data on distribution and morpho-anatomical characters of these species are provided. Expand
The Taxonomic Position Of Bentharca xenophoricola (Kuroda, 1929) and Bentharca rubrotincta Kuroda & Habe In Habe, 1958 (Bivalvia: Arcidae)
Two new combinations are suggested: Asperarca xenophoricola and Deltaodon rubrotincta, which occur off Japan, China, and southeastern Australia at depths from 50 to 500 m. Expand
Composition and distribution of bivalves of the abyssal plain adjacent to the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench (Pacific Ocean)
The high diversity and richness of the bivalve fauna on the abyssal plain in the Kuril–Kamchatka Trench area may be connected to the favorable feeding conditions in this, one of the most highly productive areas of the Pacific Ocean. Expand
Species composition and distribution of bivalves in bathyal and abyssal depths of the Sea of Japan
The deep-water bivalve fauna of the Sea of Japan is characterized by an impoverished shelf fauna and consists of eurybathic species that extend from the shelf to the bathyal and abyssal zones and most of them have a wide geographic distribution. Expand
Bivalve molluscs of the abyssal zone of the Sea of Okhotsk: Species composition, taxonomic remarks, and comparison with the abyssal fauna of the Pacific Ocean
Abstract SokhoBio expedition Until recently hardly anything was known about the abyssal bivalve fauna of the Sea of Okhotsk, which communicates with the Pacific Ocean via many straits between theExpand
