Like that of most scyphozoans, the ontogeny of Cyanea capillata medusae involves substantive alterations in feeding structures and mechanics. We used video and optical microscopy approaches to quantify these ontogenetic changes in morphology, flow, and feeding of C. capillata medusae. We found that alterations in gross morphology and nematocyst(More)
The jellyfish Drymonema larsoni bloomed in the northern Gulf of Mexico in the Fall of 2000 and fed voraciously on the moon jellyfish Aurelia sp., especially where they were concentrated in frontal convergence. We evaluated the predation potential of D. larsoni on Aurelia sp. medusa using laboratory and field data. Our data set represents the most complete(More)
