Larvae of deep-sea invertebrates harbor low-diversity bacterial communities

Tyler Carrier, Stace Beaulieu, Susan Mills, Lauren Mullineaux & Adam Reitzel
Microbial symbionts are a common life-history character of marine invertebrates and their developmental stages. Communities of bacteria that associate with the eggs, embryos, and larvae of coastal marine invertebrates are species-specific and correlate with aspects of host biology and ecology. The richness of bacteria associated with the developmental stages of coastal marine invertebrates spans four orders of magnitude from single mutualists to 1,000s of unique taxa. If the developmental stages of coastal species are broadly...
