Note(s): Writings about deep-sea reproduction have traditionally been placed in the context of two long-standing hypotheses, Orton's Rule and Thorson'sRule. The former, which predicts continuous reproduction in theisothermal regions of the deep sea, has now been disproyen for manyspecies in numerous animal phyla. The latter hypothesis, which predictsthat deep-sea animals should brood, enjoyed widespread acceptanceuntil very recently, when numerous exceptions have been documented.Thorson's Rule was originally articulated by several authors of theChallenger Reports about a half century before it was formalized byThorson, but not all of the Challenger authors believed in the absence ofdeep-sea larvae. Indeed, a careful search of the literature reveals morethan twenty pieces of evidence for deep-sea pelagic larvae publishedbefore Thorson's 1936 monograph. From the earliest days of deepseaexploration, biologists could have concluded that reproduction isaccomplished in the deep sea by a diversity of mechanisms.Florida Atlantic University.
