The spatial and temporal distributions of hydrothermal vent organisms are considered to be controlled by a combination of chemical and biological interactions. However, the degree of habitat specificity imposed by fluid chemistry on hydrothermal vent-endemic siboglinid tubeworms Tevnia jerichonana and Riftia pachyptila, as well as the mussel Bathymodiolus thermophilus, remains largely unknown. A comparison of time-series sulfide and temperature data reveals that T. jerichonana primarily inhabit… CONTINUE READING
