polychaete role in ecosystems

Dear Annelidans:

Does anyone know whether there have been recent experiments done with 
polychaetes (either by themselves or as part of benthic functional 
groups) involving metabolic rates, Carbon fluxes, nitrogen uptake and 
similar processes involving their role in the benthos and their effects 
on the sediments?

Also, is there any recent (or old but useful) biogeographical review of the 
group? as a matter of fact, as Mary Petersen points out, could they 
be serious candidates for biogeographical studies now that it is 
increasingly apparent that the formerly considered "cosmopolitan" species 
are being dismissed as such?

Thanks in advance for your input and help 
Wormest regards
