Abstract

Studies are reported on the rate at which molluscs grow at deep-sea vents and the means by which they colonise new sites. Growth rates assessed by radio-chemical techniques, mark-recapture and shell dissolution analyses are comparable to those of numerous species of shallow-water bivalves - extremely rapid for a deep-sea environment. Morphologies of larval shells suggest that some species are planktotrophic, permitting high-dispersal modes of development, but others appear to be nonplanktotrophic and the method by which they disperse between vent sites is far more difficult to address. -J.Harvey
