Description

This dataset provides the sampling locations and identifications for larvae collected near three deep-sea hydrothermal vent fields and used in a microbiome study by Carrier et al. (2020, submitted). This dataset provides metadata for larval and microbiome genetic sequence data in another repository (Carrier et al., 2020, doi.org/10.5061/dryad.sqv9s4n18). The data table is structured as a Darwin Core occurrence table so that it can be harvested by the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS) and Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). In addition to the data table, photographs are provided for some of the specimens. A .zip file of images is attached containing the .JPG files referenced by column "associatedMedia".

Larvae were collected near three different hydrothermal vent fields with locality, Location, and waterBody (N. Pacific) specified in the data: East Pacific Rise, 9 50 N vent field, Tica vent site at N EPR; Mariana Back-Arc, Snail and Archaean vent fields in Mariana Trough; and Pescadero Basin, Auka vent field in Gulf of California.
