Berried females and juveniles were associated with low-temperature flow, ∼5°C (as on Car Wash), and at the periphery of vent influence. We observed it feeding on vent fauna, especially Kiwa n. sp. DNA was extracted from the filters using a phenol/chloroform protocol [63]. Since the first discovery of deep-sea hydrothermal vents along the Galápagos Rift in 1977, numerous vent sites and endemic faunal assemblages have been found along mid-ocean ridges and back-arc basins at low to mid latitudes. Primers were selected from existing papers or, if no amplification or poor amplification occurred, were designed on the basis of existing sequence data or initial sequence data obtained in this study. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.1001234, Academic Editor: Jonathan A.

The discovery of hydrothermal vents along the Galápagos Ridge in 1977 led to the identification of chemoautotrophic symbiosis and forced marine biologists to reassess the contribution chemosynthesis makes to marine primary production, particularly in the deep sea, where it supports a high biomass in an otherwise food-limited ecosystem. For 16S, there is an estimate for porcelain crabs based on divergence of two populations of a species (Petrolisthes armatus) isolated from each other by the formation of the Panama Isthmus 3.5 Mya. sp., primers used for amplification and sequencing of cytochrome oxidase I. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.1001234.s009. The black circle indicates the sites of main venting. For these reasons, the tentative 12.2-million-year divergence date calculated for the ESR crab and K. hirsuta is likely to be more recent than the real date of divergence. In order to release energy from stored carbohydrates. Citation: Rogers AD, Tyler PA, Connelly DP, Copley JT, James R, Larter RD, et al. Chimneys of variable morphology were up to 15 m tall and venting clear fluid with a maximum measured temperature of 352.6°C, which formed focused black smokers on contact with cold seawater (Figure 2A). The analogy between hydrothermal vents and desert oases has been made many times since the discovery of the lush communities of animals that live around sites of active hydrothermal venting along oceanic spreading centers. The discovery of hydrothermal vents along the Galápagos Ridge in 1977 [1] led to the identification of chemoautotrophic symbiosis [2] and forced marine biologists to reassess the contribution chemosynthesis makes to marine primary production, particularly in the deep sea, where it supports a high biomass in an otherwise food-limited ecosystem. Hydrothermal vent ecosystems. For 28S rDNA: initial HotStarTaq denaturation at 95°C for 15 min, followed by 30 cycles of 94°C for 1 min, 55°C for 90 s, 72°C for 2 min, and a final extension of 7 min at 72°C. Vulcanolepas attached to nearby chimney (Dive 138, 2,397 m depth). This introduces a bias where sites at high latitude appear to be more distant along a latitude circle than sites at low latitude. For Vulcanolepas histone gene H3: initial HotStarTaq denaturation at 95°C for 15 min, followed by 50 cycles of 95°C for 1 min, 50°C for 1 min, 72°C for 1 min, and a final extension of 5 min at 72°C. The bottles are Teflon lined, with Teflon taps and non-metallic parts; any metallic components are titanium or high-quality stainless steel. Hydrothermal vents are structures in the bottom of the ocean that have extreme conditions. Just a few decades ago, submersibles and remote sensing technologies allowed scientists to visit the farthest reaches of the ocean for the very first time. and bythograeid crabs [9]. Based on biological observations we also present a re-analysis of the global biogeography of the deep-sea hydrothermal vent fauna, including that of the Antarctic hydrothermal vents. Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, University of Southampton, Southampton, United Kingdom, Vertical bars indicate ± one standard error, and the horizontal lines indicate one standard error above the minimum cross-validated relative error. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.1001234.s002. Several decades of exploration have resulted in the detection of numerous vent sites and faunal assemblages at many mid-ocean ridges and back-arc basins. Alignments with sequences obtained in this study and sequences from GenBank were constructed using MUSCLE with the software MEGA 4.1 [73]. Finally, our direct observations of hydrothermal vent fields south of 40°S latitude in the southern hemisphere represent the culmination of a 30-y poleward trend in hydrothermal exploration, which began at low latitudes. These analyses also indicated that several other areas, especially the eastern Pacific vent sites south of the Easter Microplate, consistently form a separate biogeographic province in a range of optimal trees. Where the C1000 Thermal Cycler was used for sequencing reactions, an Applied Biosystems 3100 DNA Analyser was used for sequencing. The 0.53% divergence rate estimate [31] is the preferred estimate as it is the only one for anomurans. For Kiwa n. sp. (A) Results of geographically constrained clustering using MRTs and a seven province model based on the data from Bachraty et al. Within the alphaproteobacteria, more than 90% of the sequences fall within the SAR11 clade, a group of ubiquitous heterotrophic bacteria found throughout the oceans. Samples were taken on the RRS James Clark Ross 224 cruise (January–February 2009). The biological filter represented by the Polar Front may thus explain the absence of bythograeid crabs, shrimps of the Alvinocarididae, and other taxa commonly associated with vents. There are extreme heat and extreme pressure in and around these vents. An 11-province model based on the combined dataset was the most frequent optimal model when using multiple cross-validations. The vent sites at E9 are situated between 60° 02.5′ and 60° 03.00′S and between 29° 59′ and 29° 58.6′W, at ∼2,400 m depth, amongst relatively flat sheet lavas to the north of a major collapse crater (named the Devil's Punchbowl; Figure 1E). Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, Massachusetts, United States of America, Affiliations Additional evidence was obtained from conductivity–temperature–depth (CTD) profiles and manganese anomalies in water samples collected at depth during that survey. Water issuing from hydrothermal vents may reach temperatures of over 700° F. Hydrothermal vents are also home to Archaea, a form of life very similar to early life on Earth. All nodes with p<0.5 were collapsed into basal polytomies. sp., a 296-bp fragment of nuclear protein-coding gene H3 and a 903-bp fragment of the nuclear ribosomal gene 28S were used for the phylogenetic analyses (see Table S5). For 18S rDNA: initial HotStarTaq denaturation at 95°C for 15 min, followed by 30 cycles of 94°C for 1 min, 50°C for 90 s, 72°C for 2 min, and a final extension of 7 min at 72°C. Citation. Around the periphery of the active high-temperature vents and diffuse flow sites are microbial mats that form a halo around the venting area at E2 (Figure 2C). Other constituents were transported back to NOC for analysis over the following 18 mo. The distribution of sexes appears to be influenced by distance from vent sources, possibly determined by temperature or vent fluid composition. They had considerably fewer filamentous bacteria on their setae than crabs near or on the chimneys, suggesting that the bacteria rely on the higher temperatures and chemistry in the immediate vicinity of the vent orifice for optimal growth. With the exception of these peripheral ridges, the ESR (Figure 1A) and various shallow banks (e.g., Pirie Bank, Bruce Bank), much of the Scotia Sea extends to depths in excess of 3,000 m. West of the ESR, the floor of the Scotia Sea forms part of the Scotia Plate. E3 to E8 have well-developed deep rift valleys, but E2 and E9 are characterised by smooth volcanic highs, typical of faster-spreading mid-ocean ridges. The latter species was described from the Brothers Caldera, Kermadec Ridge, South West Pacific [36]. [8] and the Southern Ocean sites described in this study. sp., and Lepetodrilus n. sp. n. Hydrothermal Vent Biogeography Since the discovery of animal communities thriving around seafloor hydrothermal vents in 1977, scientists have found that distinct vent animal species reside in different regions along the volcanic 40,000-mile Mid-Ocean Ridge mountain chain that encircles the globe. This region has been recognised as a biogeographic boundary, known as the Easter Microplate boundary, in several other studies [6]. Also scattered throughout the vent systems at E2 and E9 are at least three species of the vent pycnogonid Sericosura (Figure 3D), with the larger species Colossendeis cf. Phylogenetic tree for Lepetodrilus based on cytochrome oxidase I. Phylogenetic tree showing the relationships of limpets of the genus Lepetodrilus, including Lepetodrilus n. sp. Stillman and Reeb [31] estimate a divergence rate of 0.53% per million years. from the ESR also suggests that the larvae are brooded and hatch from eggs at a morphologically advanced stage, which is probably not conducive to long-distance dispersal in deep water. sp., Vulcanolepas n. [8] dataset and three and 11 provinces for the Bachraty et al. Life here ranges in complexity from single cells to higher forms such as tubeworms. All nodes with p<0.5 were collapsed into basal polytomies. Top panel: Frequency plot of the optimal tree size for 1,000 multiple cross-validations. A test of the importance of current-mediated dispersal in the evolution of communities at the ESR would be faunal and phylogenetic comparisons of this community with the biota present at the South East Pacific Rise and Chile Rise, along with that at vents along the Antarctic Peninsula in the Bransfield Strait [14]. Recent investigations of the deep-sea ecosystems of the Southern Ocean have revealed a high proportion of previously undescribed species, many of which are unknown from elsewhere [40]. While these microbes dominated the Archaean world, they now produce little biomass Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, University of Southampton, Southampton, United Kingdom. The CTD Carousel Niskin and ROV Mini-Niskin bottles were sampled for (in order): (1) methane (125 ml, poisoned with HgCl for analysis at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton [NOC]); (2) dissolved inorganic carbon (250 ml, poisoned with HgCl for analysis at NOC); (3) total dissolved organic carbon (20 ml, filtered through a 0.2-µm filter and acidified with HCl for analysis at NOC); (4) trace metals (filtered through a 0.2-µm filter into an 500-ml acid-cleaned LDPE bottle for analysis at NOC); (5) metal speciation (filtered through a 0.2-µm filter into duplicate 250-ml bottles and frozen for analysis at NOC); and (6) siderophores—remaining volume for Mini-Niskin bottles, usually 10 l for large Niskin bottles—filtered and sucked through an Isolute ENV+ column (frozen) for characterisation at NOC. Trees were then computed using the “mvpart” package [82] in the R environment for statistical computing [83]. with other anomuran taxa. For Lepetodrilus cytochrome oxidase I: initial HotStarTaq denaturation at 94°C for 15 min, followed by five cycles of 94°C for 1 min, 45°C for 1.5 min, 72°C for 1.5 min, then 30 cycles of 94°C for 1 min, 50°C for 1 min, 72°C for 1 min, and a final extension of 5 min at 72°C. [8], with an additional split in the South East Pacific Rise. National Environment Research Council. What have we learned from studying deep-sea vents? In the Bayesian analysis using MrBayes 3.1.2, the concatenated dataset was partitioned into the two gene regions, as the substitution models used were different. This level of genetic divergence is consistent with that found between Lepetodrilus species within complexes of sister taxa where interspecific distances of between 3% and 15% have been observed [33]. Targeted gene regions were amplified via PCR using one or more sets of primers. There are other substitution rate estimates for crustaceans, such as 0.65% per million years for Jamaican crabs [75], 0.9% per million years for fiddler crabs [76], and 0.67% per million years for a group of North American barnacles [77]. The vertical chimneys are covered with the anomuran Kiwa n. If the material is not included in the article’s Creative Commons license, users will need to obtain permission directly from the license holder to reproduce the material. sp., a 522-bp fragment of the mitochondrial protein-coding CO1 gene was used for the phylogenetic analysis (see Table S6). However, inferring dispersal capability from life history characteristics should be undertaken with caution, given that life history only partially explains the observed patterns of gene flow for other marine species [60],[61]. The optimal tree size, based on cross-validation error, varied between three and ten provinces for the Bachraty et al. This variation is within the range of congeneric species comparisons for the Anomura [30], and a phylogenetic analysis, using Bayesian inference, of anomuran taxa, indicates that Kiwa n. sp. Finally, the filters were all washed for salts with Milli-Q water (pH 8) and stored frozen for analysis at NOC. For each of the three species investigated, Metropolis coupled Monte Carlo Markov Chains were run for 5 million generations in two simultaneous runs, each with four differently heated chains. In particular, ecologists recognise that the unusual characteristics of deep-sea vents compared to other deep-sea habitats, coupled with the ephemeral nature of hydrothermal circulation, have probably had important implications for the composition, diversity, and biogeography of their communities and the dispersal and genetic population structure of vent species [4]–[6]. Works Cited DeChaine, E. And Cavanaugh, C. 2006. Taxa commonly found in the rest of the world's oceans, such as brachyuran crabs and decapod lobsters, are absent from the Antarctic, and the non-vent marine fauna of the Southern Ocean is highly endemic [40],[55],[56]. sp. Selection of the multivariate regression tree for a global dataset of vent species using different representations of longitude. The ESR Vulcanolepas occurs at densities of up to ∼750 m−2, particularly at E9 along the broken edge of sheet lava bathed in diffuse vent flow, as well as forming erect, dense colonies on chimneys emitting diffuse flow. An axial magma chamber is known to underlie segment E2 [20], and another is suspected to underlie segment E9 [21]. Sericosura is at the bottom right of the image (Dive 132, 2,608 m depth). All nodes with p<0.5 were collapsed into basal polytomies. n. There are no substitution rate estimates for anomuran crustaceans for 18S and 28S. Proteobacteria make up 70% of the bacterial community at E2 (66% at E9). Macpherson et al. For Lepetodrilus n. However, a seafloor image taken as long ago as 1966 at 2,377 m depth on ESR segment E9 shows a faunal assemblage similar to that which we now identify as associated with hydrothermal vents on this segment [62]. Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom, Our data from vents at E2 and E9 along the ESR provide three lines of evidence that the fauna at these sites represents a separate and new biogeographic province from those previously described for the global ocean [7],[8]. With gaps coded in the final alignment, the length was 495 bp. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.1001234.g001. Kiwa All PCR reactions and some sequencing reactions were performed on a Bio-Rad C1000 Thermal Cycler. [8], is unclear. The fauna observed at the vents along the ESR contains none of the dominant vent species normally found at vents along the main mid-ocean ridge systems. Any residue remaining in the bottle was washed in to an acid-clean 30-ml HDPE bottle with Milli-Q water. Sequences used for phylogenetic analysis of 16S rDNA to show the relationship of However, the biogeographic patterns exhibited by hydrothermal vent communities may also be influenced by larval dispersal on deep-ocean currents that do not follow the line of ridge axes, with or without the aid of evolutionary stepping stones provided by other chemosynthetic ecosystems such as cold seeps and whale falls [6]–[8]. Scale bars indicate percent sequence divergence. Hydrothermal vents form at locations where seawater meets magma. Deep-sea hydrothermal vents are mainly associated with seafloor spreading at mid-ocean ridges and in basins near volcanic island arcs. No, Is the Subject Area "Barnacles" applicable to this article? 2007. First, the Indian Ocean, South East Pacific Rise, and Antarctic sites are significantly undersampled compared to sites in the northern and central East Pacific Rise, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and western Pacific back-arc basins. Some hydrothermal vent organisms do consume t… The most obvious gastropod is an undescribed peltospiroid species (Figures 3B, 3D, and 4), generally found in dense aggregations up to ∼1,000 m−2. ROV geophysics data collection consisted of high-resolution seafloor mapping using the ROV Isis Simrad SM2000 multibeam echo sounder. The vent sites Ivory Tower, Car Wash, and Black and White are indicated. Collection of these samples was achieved using titanium (Ti) samplers, equipped with an inductively coupled link (ICL) high-temperature sensor to ensure the collection of high-quality samples. Species found at the ESR vents include anemones, lepetodrilid limpets, provannid gastropods, stalked barnacles, and at least three species of pycnogonids, thus these vents share some faunal elements with communities found at vents associated with back-arc basins in the West and South West Pacific, the mid-ocean ridge in the South East Pacific, and the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. (B) Results of geographically constrained clustering using MRTs and a seven-province model based on the data from Bachraty et al. Phylogenetic analyses using Bayesian inference of the histone H3 and 28S rDNA [35] of the ESR Vulcanolepas (GenBank accession numbers JN628252, JN628523) and stalked barnacles from other hydrothermal vents (Figure S3) confirmed that the ESR barnacles were most closely related to, but a distinct species from, V. osheai (divergence of 0.34% and 0.22%, respectively). These discoveries have resulted in an apparent global biogeography of vent organisms with separate provinces in the East Pacific, the North East Pacific, West Pacific back-arc basins, the shallow and deep Atlantic, and the Indian Ocean [7], although a more recent analysis has proposed a single province for the Atlantic, a single province for the North West Pacific, a single province for the South West Pacific and Indian Ocean, and a biogeographic separation of the North East Pacific, North East Pacific Rise, and South East Pacific Rise [8]. occurs at high population densities (∼600 m−2) proximal to fluid exits, in the niches usually taken by taxa such as alvinellid polychaetes [45] or aggregations of alvinocaridid shrimp [46]. Values above nodes are Bayesian posterior probability values. All Ti–Ti surfaces were lubricated with Fluorolube. For ribosomal genes, gaps were treated as informative events and were added as characters to the end of the sequences using the software FastGap 1.2 [74]. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pbio.1001234.s010.

Their success in these habitats is facilitated by beneficial symbiotic bacteria that are hosted within specialized gill cells called bacteriocytes. Affiliation School of Chemistry, University of Bristol, Bristol, United Kingdom, Affiliation Particularly notable in this respect are groups of the Isopoda, Ostracoda, Gastropoda, and Nematoda. Not surprisingly, different representations of longitude yield different MRT results, both in terms of optimal tree size and in the assignment of sites to “provinces” (see Text S1 and Figure S6). Scottish Oceans Institute, University of St Andrews, St Andrews, United Kingdom, Current address: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, United States of America, Affiliations In all other cases, PCR product was sent to the Macrogen Europe Laboratory, where sequencing was conducted under BigDye terminator cycling conditions; the reacted products were purified using ethanol precipitation and run using an ABI 3730XL Automatic Sequencer. It is interesting to reflect that if this seafloor assemblage had been investigated in greater detail at that time, the entire history of global-scale hydrothermal exploration could have followed a quite different path. e1001234. remotely operated vehicle; SHRIMP, Finally, the MRT analyses of the combined dataset indicate that using the most common optimal tree, E2 and E9 form a separate cluster from other vent provinces. Both of these are strike-slip plate boundaries [17]. at E9 with the stalked barnacle cf. Analyzed the data: ADR, PAT, JTC, DPC, KL, RDL, CNR, DRHG, PHBS, BA, CRG, KZ, TS, DAP. This idea is supported by the marginal differences between a range of preferential trees in the MRT (Figure 5) and by variation in the results across a number of unconstrained agglomerative cluster analyses we undertook whilst exploring the Bachraty et al. No, Is the Subject Area "Antarctic Ocean" applicable to this article? and barnacles. The substitution model with the best AIC score was the generalised time reversible model with a gamma distribution. Most active venting appears to lie along one of the smaller fissures, west of a main north–south trending feature. Two parallel lasers, 0.1 m apart, were mounted parallel to the focal axis of the camera to provide scale in images. In the 1970s, when we found vents, we saw organisms getting their energy from hydrogen sulfide, but not directly. Yes Lepetodrilus Second, the species lists presented in Bachraty et al. Longitude representations are −180° to +180°, centred on Greenwich (red/filled circles/solid line), 0° to 360° east of 60°W (blue/open circles/dashed line) and 0 to 360° east of Greenwich (green/open triangles/dotted line). (C and D) Geographic representation of the effects of different longitude encodings. The chemical composition of fluids from E2 is distinct from that at E9, and within E9 there are notable differences in the vent fluid chemistry between vents in the northern part of the site and those in the southern part (Table 1). For n. [8], but with modifications (see Materials and Methods). Fisher, C.R., K. Takai, and N. Le Bris. Akaike Information Criterion; CTD, with other lepetodrilid limpets from deep-sea hydrothermal vents. Also distinct in the assemblages of the ESR vents is the variety of vent-endemic anemones, and the presence of an undescribed seven-arm stichasterid sea star as a predator, and a conspicuous rarity of polychaetes, other than polynoid scale worms. Separate sub-samples were collected for (1) refractive index, (2) alkalinity, (3) dissolved inorganic carbon and carbon isotopes, (4) pH, (5) gases (including CH4, CO2, and H2), (6) anions and silica, (7) nutrients, (8) dissolved organic carbon, (9) O and H isotopes, and (10) bacteria, in that order. Hydrothermal vents are located at mid-ocean ridges, volcanic arcs and back-arc ... fuelling high invertebrate biomass. Some of the chimneys have expanded tops with hot vent fluid (>300°C) emanating from the underside (Figure 2B), similar to the flanges found at North East Pacific vents [23]. thousand The most important members of hydrothermal vent biocommunities are microscopic ________. The flow in the bottom 50 m at E9 is more complicated, with an underlying semidiurnal tidal flow up to 100 mm s−1 plus an asymmetric west–east–west flow of ∼50 mm s−1. sp., a 414-bp fragment of the mitochondrial ribosomal gene 16S was used for the phylogenetic analysis (see Table S4). The majority of the water samples were collected using a Seabird +911 CTD on a titanium frame with up to 24 externally sprung Niskin bottles. Current flow south of the Polar Frontal Zone is dominated by the eastward-flowing ACC, and maps of potential vorticity and evidence from ocean tracers of the high southern latitudes give rise to the possibility of larva-mediated dispersal and faunal similarities among the disjunct South East Pacific Rise, Chile Rise, ESR, and southernmost Mid-Atlantic Ridge [7],[59]. Footage from the downward-looking Atlas camera was recorded to DVCAM tapes and DVD in the ROV control van. Hydrothermal vents are located where the tectonic plates are moving apart and spreading. The chemosynthetic ecosystems hosted by these vents are dominated by a new yeti crab (Kiwa n. The most common optimal trees were the five- and seven-province models for the Bachraty et al. Using hydrothermal vents, explain the difference between primary and secondary succession. Early investigation of the life history of Kiwa n. sp. However, the presence of sulphur-oxidising bacteria on the setae of this species [32] suggests that K. hirsuta may harvest bacteria as a nutritional source [9], and if this is the case, Kiwa n. sp. [8] introduce the implicit assumption that the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific are two extremes of the spatial spectrum, whereas in reality the two are joined around the Cape of Good Hope. At E2 we located black smoker chimneys, as well as observing associated fauna, and at E9 we found considerable evidence of diffuse hydrothermal venting, with anemones and stalked barnacles being the dominant megafauna. Vent provinces are resolved comprising the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the ESR, the northern, central, and southern East Pacific Rise, a further province located south of the Easter Microplate, four provinces in the western Pacific, and a further Indian Ocean province.
