Abstract Trophic relationships in Bathymodiolus azoricus mussel bed communities on the Tour Eiffel hydrothermal edifice (Lucky Strike) were assessed using δ13C and δ15N signatures from 14 hydrothermal species. The nutritional basis of B. azoricus was also investigated with δ34S. Faunal samples and environmental data (temperature, pH, total dissolved sulfide, iron and copper concentrations) were collected from 12 different locations on the edifice. Chemical conditions varied between… Expand
Biodiversity patterns, environmental drivers and indicator species on a high-temperature hydrothermal edifice, Mid-Atlantic Ridge
TLDR
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
Spatial Differences in East Scotia Ridge Hydrothermal Vent Food Webs: Influences of Chemistry, Microbiology and Predation on Trophodynamics
TLDR
Differences in the δ13C and δ34S values of vent macroconsumers between E2 and E9 sites suggest the relative contributions of photosynthetic and chemoautotrophic carbon fixation (rTCA v CBB) entering the hydrothermal vent food webs vary between the sites. Expand
Food-Web Complexity in Guaymas Basin Hydrothermal Vents and Cold Seeps
TLDR
A comparison of seep and vent functioning in the Guaymas basin provides further supports to the hypothesis of continuity among deep-sea chemosynthetic ecosystems. Expand
Modelling the interactions of the hydrothermal mussel Bathymodiolus azoricus with vent fluid
In the 40 years since the discovery of the rich faunal community around hydrothermal vents, many studies have clearly shown that environmental conditions have a strong influence on speciesExpand
Hydrothermal faunal assemblages and habitat characterisation at the Eiffel Tower edifice (Lucky S
The Eiffel Tower edifice is situated in the Lucky Strike hydrothermal vent field at a mean depth of 1690 m on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR). At this 11-m-high hydrothermal structure, different faunalExpand
Relationship between metal levels in the vent mussel Bathymodiolus azoricus and local microhabitat chemical characteristics of Eiffel Tower (Lucky Strike)
TLDR
This study indicates that the accumulation of metals in B. azoricus is related to their spatial distribution and linked to fine scale environmental conditions that influence the physiological status of the organism. Expand
Variation in the diets of hydrothermal vent gastropods
TLDR
The results suggest that the phylogenetic and metabolic diversity of free-living bacteria may play an important and previously overlooked role in facilitating species coexistence among primary consumers at hydrothermal vents and other chemosynthesis-based ecosystems. Expand
Food-web complexity across hydrothermal vents on the Azores triple junction
TLDR
The results suggest that despite variable environmental conditions (physico-chemical factors and basal sources) and faunal community structure, functional complexity remained relatively constant among mussel assemblages. Expand
Non-equilibrium fractionation of stable carbon isotopes in Chemosynthetic mussels
Abstract Chemosynthetic bivalves from deep-sea hydrothermal vents exploit the energy derived from chemical compounds, such as methane, sulfide or hydrogen, using symbiotic bacteria that are able toExpand
High-resolution dynamics of a deep-sea hydrothermal mussel assemblage monitored by the EMSO-Açores MoMAR observatory
TLDR
One of the longest integrated (faunal and environmental data) time series ever obtained in a hydrothermal ecosystem is presented, providing the first insights into the day-to-day variations in a Bathymodiolus azoricus mussel assemblage from the Lucky Strike vent field for the 48 days during which the video camera operated.

Using stable isotopes and quantitative community characteristics to determine a local hydrothermal vent food web
TLDR
Overall the study suggested a dominant pattern of energy transfer from microbial producers to symbiont-bearing siboglinid tubeworms, various bacterivores (gastropods, polychaetes and pycnogonids), and detritivorous polychaETes to predaceous polynoids. Expand
Habitat controls on vent food webs at Eifuku Volcano, Mariana Arc
TLDR
Food web characteristics at three contrasting habitats on the slopes of NW Eifuku volcano in the Northern Mariana Arc, using stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes suggest a strong input of chemosynthesis using Rubisco form II and δ 13 C depletion was observed in the mussels at the other two sites that were receiving advected or weak local hydrothermal flow.

Nutritional interactions in Galapagos Rift hydrothermal vent communities: inferences from stable carbon and nitrogen isotope analyses
Nutritional interactions among invertebrates at 3 vent sltes on the Galapagos R~ft are examined through the use of stable carbon and nitrogen Isotopes. A large number of indviduals of several ventExpand
Site-specific and ontogenetic variations in nutrition of mussels (Bathymodiolus sp.) from the Lucky Strike hydrothermal vent field, Mid- Atlantic Ridge
TLDR
Observations of the demersal nature of mussel larvae and isotopic similarities between Sintra and Eiffel Tower larvae and SintRA adults suggest that the potential of stable isotopes as useful tracers of larval sources within the Lucky Strike vent field should be considered. Expand
POM in macro-/meiofaunal food webs associated with three flow regimes at deep-sea hydrothermal vents on Axial Volcano, Juan de Fuca Ridge
TLDR
It is concluded that small-scale spatial variability in food sources is an important feature of vent food webs and that spatial patterns observed here and elsewhere are shaped by variations in hydrothermal discharge. Expand
Microorganisms as food resources at deep-sea hydrothermal vents
TLDR
Stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen were used to examine the diversity of microbial populations consumed as foods at deep-sea hydrothermal vents to suggest the use of more than one microbial food resource at vents and suggest tubeworm symbioses may play a minor role as nutritional resources in vent food webs.

Trophic ecology of siphonostomatoid copepods at deep-sea hydrothermal vents in the northeast Pacific
TLDR
Although neither worm appeared anatomically equipped for seizing live copepod prey, it is suggested that dead copepods may be con- sumed along with other particulate debris by the paralvinellid worms. Expand
Characterization of Symbiont Populations in Life-History Stages of Mussels From Chemosynthetic Environments
TLDR
The densities of chemoautotrophic and methanotrophic symbiont morphotypes were determined in life- history stages of two species of mussels from deep-sea chemosynthetic environments (the Lucky Strike hydrothermal vent and the Blake Ridge cold seep) in the Atlantic Ocean. Expand
Size-dependent variations on the nutritional pathway of Bathymodiolus azoricus demonstrated by a C-flux model
TLDR
Results suggest that, an individual of a certain size can potentially regulate the relative contribution of filter-feeding and endosymbiosis according to external conditions, and large B. azoricus exhibit a higher level of nutritional flexibility than small mytilids. Expand
Ontogenetic shifts in the trophic ecology of two alvinocaridid shrimp species at hydrothermal vents on the Mariana Arc, western Pacific Ocean
TLDR
It is suggested that as juveniles both species rely to varying degrees on bacteria and that opportunism and scavenging are likely sources of nutrition in older individuals. Expand
