Symbionts of marine medusae and ctenophores
Previously published data on symbionts on these gelatinous predators are reviewed and new information is introduced in the form of unpub- lished data about symbiotic apostome ciliates, anthozoan larvae and hyperiid amphipods.

This is the first attempt to estimate species richness for all marine species in Japanese waters, and indicates that more than 70% of Japan's marine biodiversity remains un-described.

Benthic Exchange and Biogeochemical Cycling in Permeable Sediments
The sandy sediments that blanket the inner shelf are situated in a zone where nutrient input from land and strong mixing produce maximum primary production and tight coupling between water column and…

Molecular data are brought to bear on the question of phylogenetic relationships within Trachylina, suggesting that the polyp stage has been lost independently at least two times within trachyline evolution.
Evaluation of the bioactivities of water-soluble extracts from twelve deep-sea jellyfish species
A high incidence of water-soluble bioactive substances occurring in these deep-sea jellyfishes was revealed and all the heat-treated and the methanol-treated crude jellyfish extracts lost their bioactivities.
Mitochondrial genome structure and evolution in the living fossil vampire squid, Vampyroteuthis infernalis, and extant cephalopods.
Phylogenetic analysis of higher-level relationships within Hydroidolina (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa) using mitochondrial genome data and insight into their mitochondrial transcription
The near complete mitochondrial sequence of twenty-six hydroidolinan hydrozoan species is obtained from a range of sources and a mechanism for the expression of mitochondrial mRNA in Hydroidolina is proposed that can be extrapolated to the other medusozoan taxa.
