The book begins by explaining what is known about hydrothermal systems in terms of their deep sea environment and their geological and chemical makeup the coverage of microbial ecology includes a chapter on symbiosis. It will be a valuable resource serving as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses and as a reference for researchers in the fields of deep sea hydrothermal vents oceanography marine biology invertebrate zoology microbiology and biogeography. Hydrothermal vent populations are of particular interest since these dense populations of large fast growing animals flourish in the dark at high pressures and low temperatures the usual environment of the deep sea. Teeming with weird and wonderful life giant clams and mussels tubeworms eyeless shrimp and bacteria that survive on sulfur deep sea hot water springs are found along rifts where sea floor spreading occurs the theory of plate tectonics predicted the existence of these hydrothermal vents but . Hydrothermal vents deep sea hydrothermal vents form as a result of volcanic activity on the ocean floor water seeps through cracks in the earths crust dissolving metals and minerals as it becomes super heated from nearby magma
