Locomotion of marine invertebrate larvae: a review
TLDR
Marine invertebrate larvae swim by using cilia or muscles, or a combination of these, and, owing to the small Reynold's numbers that operate in this size range, their movements are governed by viscous forces rather than inertial ones.
Kinetics of Fertilization in the Sea Urchin Strongylocentrotus franciscanus: Interaction of Gamete Dilution, Age, and Contact Time.
TLDR
The authors' results indicated that sperm concentration, sperm-egg contact time, sperm age, and individual variability were sequentially the most important factors influencing fertilization success.
How Distribution and Abundance Influence Fertilization Success in the Sea Urchin Strongylocentotus Franciscanus
TLDR
It is indicated that individual reproductive performance is dependent on, and highly sensitive to, population parameters and environmental conditions, and group size, degree of aggregation, position within a spawning group, and water flow all affect fertilization success.
Development and metamorphosis of the planktotrophic larvae of Rostanga pulchra (Mollusca: Nudibranchia)
TLDR
Although the veligers are generalists in their food preference, the best result was achieved by feeding them with a combination of Monochrysis lutheri and Isochrysis galbana, and the competent veliger is able to delay metamorphosis for at least 3 weeks.
Development, settling behaviour, metamorphosis and pentacrinoid feeding and growth of the feather star Florometra serratissima
TLDR
It is suggested that gregarious settlement plays a role in the formation and maintenance of adult aggregations of F. serratissima and metamorphosis into a stalked cystidean following settlement is rapid.
Fine structure of Sertoli cells in three marine snails with a discussion on the functional morphology of Sertoli cells in general
TLDR
The term ‘nurse cell’, which has been used in the past to describe at least three different cell types, including Sertoli cells and apyrene sperm, be restricted to abortive oogonia that contribute to development of an oocyte is proposed.
Fine structural studies of the nervous system and the apical organ in the planula larva of the sea anemone Anthopleura elegantissima
The nervous system of the planula larva of Anthopleura elegantissima consists of an apical organ, one type of endodermal receptor cell, two types of ectodermal receptor cells, central neurons and
