Early Cambrian origin of modern food webs: evidence from predator arrow worms
Although palaeontological evidence from exceptional biota demonstrates the existence of diverse marine communities in the Early Cambrian (approx. 540–520 Myr ago), little is known concerning theExpand

Evidence for the presence of serotonin in Mysidacea (Crustacea, Peracarida) as revealed by fluorescence immunohistochemistry
Abstract. In crustaceans, serotonin (5-HT) exerts a wide range of physiological actions on many tissues. However, 5-HT has not been detected to date in Mysidacea (Crustacea, Peracarida). We haveExpand

Comparative studies and evolution of muscles in chaetognaths
The chaetognath locomotory muscles exhibit astonishing variations. The secondary muscle, which represents less than 1% of the body wall, has two forms. One is unique in the animal kingdomExpand

Morphology and ultrastructure of the gut in Spadella cephaloptera (chaetognatha)
Structural and ultrastructural studies on the gut of the chaetognath Spadella cephaloptera, as well as observations on the feeding behavior of specimens bred in the laboratory, were conducted. TheExpand

Comparison of chaetognath mitochondrial genomes and phylogenetical implications.
Two complete mitochondrial genomes (mtDNAs) of chaetognaths, Spadella cephaloptera and Paraspadella gotoi, have been recently published. These genomes are highly unusual. They are the smallestExpand

Comparative morphology of the foregut of four Gnathophausia species (Crustacea; Mysidacea; Lophogastrida). Relationships with other taxa
The features of the foregut of Gnathophausia ingens Dohrn, 1870, G. zoea W.-Suhm, 1875, G. longispina G. O. Sars, 1883 and G. gracilis W.-Suhm, 1875 (Crustacea, Mysidacea, Lophogastrida,Expand

Interrelationships of the two families constituting the Lophogastrida (Crustacea: Mysidacea) inferred from morphological and molecular data
Abstract The Lophogastrida are primitive Mysidacea and comprise only six genera. One of these, Eucopia is considered as highly specialized and constitutes the family Eucopiidae; the other generaExpand
