Traits and depth: what do hydroids tell us about morphology and life-history strategies in the deep sea?

Marina Oliveira Fernandez, Allen Collins, Arjan Gittenberger, Roy Kaustuv & Antonio Carlos Marques
Aim: Traits affect the survival and reproduction of individuals in different habitat conditions, ultimately altering their distributions. In the oceans, changes in environmental conditions with bathymetry may influence the occurrence of specific traits. Therefore, characterizing trait variation with depth can illuminate drivers related to the distribution of diversity of forms, functions, and life histories. We aimed to investigate patterns of variation in the diversified life histories and morphologies of hydroids with depth, integrating these patterns...
