Comparative morphology of the nervous system in three phylactolaemate bryozoans
BackgroundThough some elements of the bryozoan nervous system were discovered 180 years ago, few studies of their neuromorphology have been undertaken since that time. As a result the general pictureExpand

FROM INCIPIENT TO SUBSTANTIAL: EVOLUTION OF PLACENTOTROPHY IN A PHYLUM OF AQUATIC COLONIAL INVERTEBRATES
Matrotrophy has long been known in invertebrates, but it is still poorly understood and has never been reviewed. A striking example of matrotrophy (namely, placentotrophy) is provided by the Bryozoa,Expand

Comparative studies of ovicell anatomy and reproductive patterns in Cribrilina annulata and Celleporella hyalina (Bryozoa: Cheilostomatida)
Investigations of the common boreal-arctic cheilostomate bryozoans Cribrilina annulata and Celleporella hyalina have shown that the two species possess similar ovicell structures and reproductiveExpand

Bryodiversity in the tropics: taxonomy of Microporella species (Bryozoa, Cheilostomata) with personate maternal zooids from Indian Ocean, Red Sea and southeast Mediterranean
The particularly speciose cheilostomate genus Microporella includes taxa whose maternal zooids and associated ovicells present a personate structure, i.e. a particularly developed peristome. SixExpand

Matrotrophy and placentation in invertebrates: a new paradigm
Matrotrophy, the continuous extra‐vitelline supply of nutrients from the parent to the progeny during gestation, is one of the masterpieces of nature, contributing to offspring fitness and oftenExpand

MORPHOLOGICAL DIFFERENTIATION OF AVICULARIA AND THE PROLIFERATION OF SPECIES IN MID-CRETACEOUS WILBERTOPORA CHEETHAM, 1954 (BRYOZOA: CHEILOSTOMATA)
Abstract Discovery of avicularium-like polymorphs in Wilbertopora mutabilis Cheetham, 1954 has provided not only a new opportunity for revising the genus Wilbertopora Cheetham, 1954, but also a moreExpand

Individual autozooidal behaviour and feeding in marine bryozoans
Abstract The article is devoted to individual behaviour of autozooids (mainly connected with feeding and cleaning) in 40 species and subspecies of marine bryozoans from the White Sea and the BarentsExpand

Independent evolution of matrotrophy in the major classes of Bryozoa: transitions among reproductive patterns and their ecological background
Bryozoa are unique among invertebrates in possessing placenta-like analogues and exhibiting extraembryonic nutrition in all high-level (class) taxa. Extant representatives of the classes StenolaemataExpand
