To better understand the species composition and nutrition of deepwater sponges in Lake Baikal, we determined the depth, habitat, and stable isotopic signatures for deepwater sponges. All sponge specimens except one were collected at depths below the photic zone and in a variety of benthic habitats including methane seeps and hydrothermal vents. The(More)
A histological analysis of the tissue structure in different species of Baikal sponges was performed. The material was collected at a depth of 3–4 m at the Berezovyi test site (southern Lake Baikal) in various seasons of 2001–2003. During the entire year, representatives of the family Lubomirskiidae had a well-developed irrigation system with numerous(More)
