C Hamlet is less open to an all-encompassing

Heights. 59 The deep sea typically has a sparse fauna dominated
by tiny worms and crustaceans, with an even sparser
distribution of larger animals. However, near
Line hydrothermal vents, areas of the ocean where warm water
emerges from subterranean sources, live remarkable
densities of huge clams, blind crabs, and fish.
Most deep-sea faunas rely for food on particulate
matter, ultimately derived from photosynthesis, falling
from above. The food supplies necessary to sustain the
10 large vent communities, however, must be many times
the ordinary fallout. The first reports describing vent
faunas proposed two possible sources of nutrition:
bacterial chemosynthesis, production of food by bacteria
using energy derived from chemical changes, and
15 advection, the drifting of food materials from surrounding
regions. Later, evidence in support of the idea of intense
local chemosynthesis was accumulated: hydrogen sulfide
was found in vent water; many vent-site bacteria were
found to be capable of chemosynthesis; and...
