Just a quick additional thought.  Look at the papers by Karl's
student, Craig Moyer, who published a series of articles in Appl.
Environ. Microbiol. in 1994-95 on communities around the Lohi
seamount.  Don't know if these were ready when Karl put together his
book.  Also, Craig Carey looked at endosymbionts of tube worms, but I
don't have the references here.
