Effects of a long-term rearing system for deep-sea vesicomyid clams on host survival and endosymbiont retention

Deep-sea vesicomyid clams, including the genus Phreagena, harbor obligate sulfur-oxidizing symbiotic bacteria in gill epithelial cells. Difficulty in maintaining Phreagena clams in rearing tanks has been a major obstacle to achieving a better understanding of their unique biology. To improve the method of rearing Phreagena clams, here we reared them in an artificial...

High Connectivity of Animal Populations in Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent Fields in the Central Indian Ridge Relevant to Its Geological Setting

Dispersal ability plays a key role in the maintenance of species in spatially and temporally discrete niches of deep-sea hydrothermal vent environments. On the basis of population genetic analyses in the eastern Pacific vent fields, dispersal of animals in the mid-oceanic ridge systems generally appears to be constrained by geographical barriers such as trenches, transform faults...

Discovery of New Hydrothermal Activity and Chemosynthetic Fauna on the Central Indian Ridge at 18°–20°S

Indian Ocean hydrothermal vents are believed to represent a novel biogeographic province, and are host to many novel genera and families of animals, potentially indigenous to Indian Ocean hydrothermal systems. In particular, since its discovery in 2001, much attention has been paid to a so-called ‘scaly-foot’ gastropod because of its unique iron-sulfide-coated dermal sclerites...
