About this book

Language: English

Vents and seeps are the epitome of life in extreme environments, but there is much more to these systems than just black smokers or hydrocarbon seeps. Many other ecosystems are characterized by moving fluids and Life at Vents and Seeps provides an overview of the different habitats, their specific conditions as well as the technical challenges that have to be met when studying them. Life at Vents and Seeps provides the current state of the art and will be a valuable resource for everybody that has an interest in such environments.
