Echinoderm phylogeny including Xyloplax, a progenetic asteroid.
Reconstruction of the phylogeny of the five extant classes of the phylum Echinodermata has proven difficult. Results concerning higher-level taxonomic relationships among echinoderms are sensitive toExpand

CLADISTIC ANALYSIS OF THE OCTOPODS BASED ON ANATOMICAL CHARACTERS
Parsimony analysis of 29 finned and finless octopod taxa considered 66 anatomical and morphological characters to discover synapomorphies that unite monophyletic groups. The resultant cladogram (177Expand

Xylotrophic bivalves: aspects of their biology and the impacts of humans
Bivalves of the families Teredinidae and Xylophagaidae bore into and eat wood in shallow water and the deep sea, respectively. After an introduction to these sister taxa, I consider how they bore,Expand

A deep-sea octopus (Graneledone cf. boreopacifica) as a shell-crushing hydrothermal vent predator
The gut contents of a female specimen of Graneledone cf. boreopacifica collected from the caldera wall of Axial Volcano, near an active hydrothermal vent in the Northeast Pacific Ocean are reported.Expand

Morphological and Genetic Diversity of the Wood-Boring Xylophaga (Mollusca, Bivalvia): New Species and Records from Deep-Sea Iberian Canyons
Deep-sea bivalves of the Xylophagaidae, a poorly known group, are obligate wood-borers. Deployment of wood in three submarine canyons off the Iberian coast, the Blanes and La Fonera CanyonsExpand

A review of ammonia‐mediated buoyancy in squids (cephalopoda: Teuthoidea)
Some deep water squids are known to achieve neutral buoyancy by storing ammonium in their body tissues. The Cranchiidae use a unique coelomic cavity to store ammoniacal fluid; in 15 other families,Expand

The Southern Ocean: Source and sink?
Many members of the benthic fauna of the Antarctic continental shelf share close phylogenetic relationships to the deep-sea fauna adjacent to Antarctica and in other ocean basins. It has beenExpand

Egg brooding by deep-sea octopuses in the North Pacific Ocean.
Videotapes made from the submersible Alvin on Baby Bare, a 2600-m-deep North Pacific basalt outcrop, and at two other deep-sea localities document that octopuses of the genera Graneledone andExpand

Microsatellite inheritance and multiple paternity in the deep‐sea octopus Graneledone boreopacifica (Mollusca: Cephalopoda)
Abstract. Octopodids are a globally distributed group of marine molluscs. Despite this, our knowledge of their reproductive biology rests heavily on inference, as all phases of copulation, beginningExpand
