Note(s): We tested the hypothesis that, for bathyal and abyssal echinoderms and ascidians of the Atlantic Ocean, species with planktotrophic larval development have broader biogeographic and bathymetric ranges than species with lecithotrophic development. In comparing two groups with lecithotrophic development, we found that ascidians, which probably have a shorter larval period and therefore less dispersal potential, were present in fewer geographic regions than elasipod holothurians, which are likely to have longer larval periods.
