Thesis title: Invertebrate recruitment at deep-sea hydrothermal vents across the Northeast Pacific.

Invertebrate populations at hydrothermal vents are frequently fragmented from each other, as individual areas of active venting are often separated by hundreds of kilometres. To colonize these vents, species in these habitats must be able to disperse over great distances, detect suitable substrates for settlement, and recruit successfully. My thesis is concerned with the spatial and temporal variability in invertebrate supply and recruitment (of juveniles into the adult population) among hydrothermal vents with different histories and will explore the biological, chemical, and physical factors that may influence these patterns.

Key Words: recruitment, larval dispersal, diversity, invertebrates, hydrothermal vents.
