To investigate food web structure in diffuse flow vent environments, an entire macro- faunal community associated with a single aggregation of the tubeworm Ridgeia piscesae was col- lected from a vent field on the Juan de Fuca Ridge in the NE Pacific. All members of the community were identified and enumerated, and the biomass and stable carbon (δ 13 C) and nitrogen (δ 15 N) iso- tope ratios were determined for almost all taxa. Symbiont-bearing invertebrates (primarily R. pisce- sae) accounted… Expand
