Abstract
A new type of hydrothermal vent field in the Atlantic Ocean called Lost City was discovered in 2000. As Boetius describes in her Perspective, recent detailed mapping of this hydrothermal vent field as well as chemical and microbial analyses ( Kelley et al.) reveal that an extraordinary array of micro- and macro-organisms inhabit the giant white carbonate chimneys of Lost City.
