Title Hydrothermal vent fauna
Description The "Aquarium" site at East Diamante volcano is a lush marine community located in the deepest part of the photosynthetic zone. You can tell by the excited voices of the scientists that the abundant and colorful life here contrasts dramatically with the sparser biological communities they are used to seeing at deep ocean hydrothermal vents.

Tree of Life Media Use Survey

The information you provide in this survey will help us improve the ToL media collection. We are trying to find out what kinds of people are using our images, movies, sounds, etc., what they are using them for, and what we could do to make the collection more useful to them.

How do you use this movie? If you are a teacher/professor/librarian: At what level do you teach/learn? How old are you? Where in the world do you live/learn/teach? Do you have any suggestion on how we could improve the Tree of Life media collection?
