The phylogenetic relationships of whale-fall vesicomyid clams based on mitochondrial COI DNA sequences
Marine Ecology Progress Series
Whale skeletons on the deep-sea floor provide sulfide-rich habitats that may act as stepping stones for the dispersal of animals dependent on chemoautotrophic production. However, the phylogenetic relationships between the faunas of whale falls, hydrothermal vents and colds seeps are not fully evaluated. To examine vesicomyid phylogenetic relationships, we collected 10 vesicomyid clams from 2 whale falls on the California margin, one at 1240 m in the Santa Catalina Basin and one at 960 r n ondoi:10.3354/meps182137 fatcat:id5lbyrxobhx5daaarxwkvgkiq
