Larval Life Histories
A knowledge of larval attributes and species life histories is needed to investigate larval dispersal in coupled bio-physical models. Here we provide information on selected vent species that are  important in the EPR ecosystem and/or abundant in our samples.  Some of the measurements are from deep-sea species under deep-sea conditions, but most were obtained from related shallow-water organisms and at temperatures of 10-20°C.
