Sergey V Galkin & E I Goroslavskaya
Samples from mytilid mollusk and alvinellid polychaet communities and associated fauna were collected from the MIR-1 and MIR-2 manned submersibles during Cruise 49 of R/V Akademik Mstislav Keldysh at 9°? of the East Pacific Rise. Mytilids Bathymodiolus thermophylus occupied zones of diffuse discharge of hydrothermal solutions with temperature anomalies of some degrees. The alvinellid assemblages were located in the hottest parts of hydrothermal vents (~40°C) over sulfide mounds. Taxonomic compositions of these kinds of assemblages...
