    Ron J Etter
    Biology Department, University of Massachusetts, Boston, MA 02125, USA
    Mol Ecol 20:829-43. 2011
    ..Our results indicate that abyssal populations might be quite large (cosmopolitan), exhibit only modest genetic structure and probably provide little potential for the formation of new species...

    John D Zardus
    Department of Biology, University of Massachusetts, Boston, 02125, USA
    Mol Ecol 15:639-51. 2006
    ..Broadly distributed deep-sea organisms can possess highly genetically divergent populations, despite the lack of any morphological divergence...

    Robert M Jennings
    Biology Department, University of Massachusetts Boston, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 8:e77594. 2013
    ..As inferred for numerous shallow-water species, environmental gradients that parallel changes in depth may play a key role in the genesis and adaptive radiation of the deep-water fauna. ..
  5. ncbi request reprint Shading facilitates sessile invertebrate dominance in the rocky subtidal Gulf of Maine
    Robert J Miller
    Biology Department, University of Massachusetts Boston, Boston, Massachusetts 02125, USA
    Ecology 89:452-62. 2008
    ..These results suggest that light plays a key role in controlling the structure, composition, and function of shallow subtidal communities...

    Cascade J B Sorte
    School for the Environment, University of Massachusetts, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 8:e80868. 2013
    ..Our findings suggest that elemental "fingerprinting" is a promising approach for predicting redistribution potential of the blue mussel, an ecologically and economically important species in the region. ..
