Here we characterize the GOC mussels genetically and morphologically and examine current hypotheses about the taxonomic status and biogeographic distribution
of the Atlantic "Bathymodiolus" species at seep sites.
Second, the discrete biogeographic distributions
of these two taxa may be a consequence of physiological differentiation; if so, these differences provide a source of habitat reproductive isolation between the taxa.
Tegula funebralis has a broad biogeographic distribution
in the eastern Pacific.
Similarly, larvae may encounter high er temperatures (17-20[degrees]C) at the southern limits of their biogeographic distribution
, or in surface waters during the early summer months (Cannon, 1978; Strathmann, 1987).
Accurate records of biogeographic distributions
(latitude and elevation) are becoming increasingly important as species shift their distribution in response to global climate change (Walther et al.
