Substrate choice and settlement preferences of planula larvae of five Scyphozoa (Cnidaria) from German Bight, North Sea
The settlement behaviour of planula larvae and their development to young polyps was investigated in laboratory experiments in five scyphozoan species [Aurelia aurita (L.), Cyanea capillata (L.),Expand

Effects of low salinity on settlement and strobilation of scyphozoa (Cnidaria): Is the lion’s mane Cyanea capillata (L.) able to reproduce in the brackish Baltic Sea?
Several species of scyphozoan medusae occur in river estuaries and other brackish waters but it is often unknown if the planulae settle and the scyphopolyps reproduce in those low-salinity waters. InExpand

Asexual reproduction strategies and blooming potential in Scyphozoa
Scyphistomae show different modes of propagation, occasionally allowing the sudden release of great numbers of medusae through strobilation leading to so-called jellyfish blooms. Accordingly, factorsExpand

Life cycle of the rhizostome jellyfish Rhizostoma octopus (L.) (Scyphozoa, Rhizostomeae), with studies on cnidocysts and statoliths
Stages in the life cycle of the rhizostome jellyfish Rhizostoma octopus (L.) were reared in the laboratory from planula to young medusa and are described here. Fertilization of eggs was external, andExpand

New insights into reproductive traits of scyphozoans: special methods of propagation in Sanderia malayensis GOETTE, 1886 (Pelagiidae, Semaeostomeae) enable establishing a new classification of
Asexual propagation is an underappreciated way of increasing the sessile population of the metagenetic Scyphozoa. Our studies on Sanderia malayensis have shown a great variety of asexual reproductionExpand

Life cycle of Carybdea marsupialis Linnaeus, 1758 (Cubozoa, Carybdeidae) reveals metamorphosis to be a modified strobilation
Two types of metamorphosis occur in the life cycle of Carybdea marsupialis Linnaeus 1758 (Cubozoa, Carybdeidae). In addition to the metamorphosis described several times over, during which the entireExpand
