DNA primers for amplification of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I from diverse metazoan invertebrates.
We describe "universal" DNA primers for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of a 710-bp fragment of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene (COI) from 11 invertebrate phyla:Expand
Evolution and Biogeography of Deep-Sea Vent and Seep Invertebrates
The recent evolution of many vent and seep invertebrate species suggests that Cenozoic tectonic history and oceanic circulation patterns have been important in defining contemporary biogeographic patterns. Expand
Osedax: Bone-Eating Marine Worms with Dwarf Males
A new genus, Osedax, and two new species of annelids with females that consume the bones of dead whales via ramifying roots are described, which belongs to the Siboglinidae, which includes pogonophoran and vestimentiferan worms from deep-sea vents, seeps, and anoxic basins. Expand
Factors Affecting Clonal Diversity and Coexistence
In all-female organisms such as Poeciliopsis, which are dependent upon sexual species for insemination, competitive abilities probably are at a premium in the densely populated pools and arroyos of the Sonoran Desert. Expand
Biogeography and Ecological Setting of Indian Ocean Hydrothermal Vents
Most organisms found at these Indian Ocean vent fields have evolutionary affinities with western Pacific vent faunas, but a shrimp that ecologically dominates Indian Ocean vents closely resembles its Mid-Atlantic counterpart. Expand
Genetic diversity and connectivity of deep‐sea hydrothermal vent metapopulations
Level of genetic diversity appear to correspond with the number of active vent localities that a species occupies within its range, although natural barriers associated with variation in depth, deep‐ocean currents, and lateral offsets of ridge axes often subdivide populations. Expand
Conservation genetics of freshwater fish
Case studies from endangered populations of topminnows from North American deserts are used to illustrate a variety of methods used in conservation genetic studies. Expand
Blake Ridge methane seeps: characterization of a soft-sediment, chemosynthetically based ecosystem
Observations from the first submersible reconnaissance of the Blake Ridge Diapir provide the geological and ecological contexts for chemosynthetic communities established in close association withExpand
ral clones are particularly relevant as an era begins in which the artificial cloning of mammals, and potentially humans, is no longer a fantasy. To an evolutionary biologist, sex is meioticExpand
A new genus and five new species of mussels lBivalviac Mytilidaer from deep-sea sulfideshydrocarbon seeps in the Gulf of Mexico
Five new species of modioliform mussels in the family Mytilidae are described from material collected at sulfide/hydrocarbon seeps in the Gulf of Mexico. New definitive taxa, placed in the subfamilyExpand
