Hurricane Allen's Impact on Jamaican Coral Reefs.
Coral reefs of north Jamaica, normally sheltered, were severely damaged by Hurricane Allen, the strongest Caribbean hurricane of this century. Immediate studies were made at Discovery Bay, where reefExpand

Populations of the staghorn coral, Acropora cervicornis, often form dense monotypic stands on shallow Caribbean reefs. This coral species has a fragile structure that results in large numbers ofExpand
A Biogeographical Perspective of the Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent Fauna
ABSTRACT Biogeography seeks to distinguish patterns in the distribution of species and to determine causal processes. Hydrothermal vent habitats have several properties that invite biogeographicExpand
Survival of mussels in extremely acidic waters on a submarine volcano.
Increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are causing ocean acidification, compromising the ability of some marine organisms to build and maintain support structures. An analysis of mussels from aExpand
Tubeworm-associated communities at hydrothermal vents on the Juan de Fuca Ridge, northeast Pacific
Abstract Hydrothermal vent communities on a mid-ocean ridge crest can be separated by large distances on separate segments. Heat sources, vent character, fluid chemistry and current patterns mayExpand
Biological colonization of new hydrothermal vents following an eruption on Juan de Fuca Ridge
Abstract A recent eruption on CoAxial Segment of Juan de Fuca Ridge initiated hydrothermal conditions with rapid changes in water chemistry and growth of microbial communities. Vent animals recruitedExpand
A Holocene record of marine fish remains from the Northeastern Pacific
Abstract Ocean Drilling Program Leg 169S retrieved a complete Holocene sequence from Saanich Inlet, British Columbia, Canada. Fish and diatom remains were extracted from sediments at Site 1034. VeryExpand
Hydrothermal Vents and Methane Seeps: Rethinking the Sphere of Influence
Although initially viewed as oases within a barren deep ocean, hydrothermal vent and methane seep communities are now recognized to interact with surrounding ecosystems on the sea floor and in theExpand
Characteristics of a hydrothermal vent assemblage on a volcanically active segment of Juan de Fuca Ridge, northeast Pacific
An eruption on Cleft segment, Juan de Fuca Ridge, in 1986 provided an opportunity to observe potential successional patterns in vent-animal colonisation. Other objectives were to describe the CleftExpand
