    Evolution 58:338-48. 2004
    ..The lower bathyal fauna contains a fairly equable mix of species abundances, trophic modes, and shell types. The abyssal group is numerically dominated by species that are deposit feeders with compact unsculptured shells...

    Department of Biology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131, USA
    Evolution 59:1492-9. 2005
    ..The findings suggest the importance of interacting ecological and evolutionary processes at varying spatiotemporal scales for both morphological disparity and species richness...
