Welcome to the vent larvae cruises blog. Later this year, in September 2010, members of the Mullineaux lab group will be participating on a Japanese research cruise to study larvae at deep-sea hydrothermal vents in the southern Mariana Trough. Our group's previous cruises have included studies of larvae at the East Pacific Rise, such as the LADDER project cruises in 2006 and 2007 (http://www.whoi.edu/projects/LADDER/). We also maintain a website and published a Photographic Identification Guide to Larvae at Hydrothermal Vents (http://www.whoi.edu/vent-larval-id/).
