This exploration of fundamental biological processes concentrates on the deep sea. The contributors illuminate the many levels of biological integration, from the cell to the community, and cover most phyla of marine invertebrates. Topics discussed include larval development and species diversity in gastropods, recruitment ecology and the age of deep-sea populations, the ecology of external fertilization, reproductive diversity in the deep sea, seasonality and continuity factors in the reproduction of invertebrates, and patterns of growth in bivalves. Historical perspectives on studies of deep-sea reproduction are also given.
