Extensive mitochondrial gene arrangements in coleoid Cephalopoda and their phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
Analysis of both the phylogenetic tree and mitochondrial gene rearrangements of coleoid Cephalopoda suggests that each mitochondrial gene arrangement was acquired after the divergence of each lineage.
Age and maturation of Loligo duvauceli and L. chinensis from Andaman Sea of Thailand
TLDR
The results of the back calculation for the hatching date of individuals fell between November 2004 and June 2005 which suggests that L. duvauceli and L. chinensis hatch continuously and recruit to the fishing ground for a relatively short period with a shorter lifespan than expected.
Embryonic and paralarval development of the central nervous system of the loliginid squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana
TLDR
The embryonic development of the central nervous system (CNS) in the oval squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana is described and some phylogenetic aspects are discussed based on the similarities in the morphologic organization of their brains.
Characterization of a novel SINE superfamily from invertebrates: "Ceph-SINEs" from the genomes of squids and cuttlefish.
TLDR
The distributions of the isolated SINEs showed that order Sepiida, suborders Oegopsida and Myopsida, and order Idiosepiida have their own independent SINE(s), and suggest that orderSepiida can be largely separated into two groups, with clarification of the phylogenetic relatedness between subfamily Sepioteuthinae and the other loliginid squids.
Biomagnification profiles of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, alkylphenols and polychlorinated biphenyls in Tokyo Bay elucidated by delta13C and delta15N isotope ratios as guides to trophic web
TLDR
Biomagnification profiles of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, alkylphenols, and polychlorinated biphenyls from the innermost part of Tokyo Bay, Japan were analyzed using stable carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios as guides to trophic web structure to identify consumers.
Bioconcentration and biomagnification of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) through lower-trophic-level coastal marine food web.
TLDR
PBDEs are less biomagnified than PCBs, and the more hydrophobic congeners of both PBDEs and PCBs were biomagnify more.
Mitochondrial genome structure and evolution in the living fossil vampire squid, Vampyroteuthis infernalis, and extant cephalopods.
TLDR
It is reasonable to recognize three major groups in Coleoidea--Vampyromorpha, Octopoda, and Decapodiformes, and the monophyletic relationship of two myopsid squids Loligo bleekeri and Sepiotheuthis lessoniana is suggested.
Composition of piscine prey in the diet of large pelagic fish in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean
TLDR
The stomach contents of seven pelagic fish species collected by longline in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean were examined, finding that the choice of prey fish was very similar between bigeye tuna and swordfish, yellowfin tuna and Swordfish,yellowfin tunaand dolphinfish, and big eye tuna and pelagic thresher.
Development of the Brain in the Oegopsid Squid, Todarodes pacificus: An Atlas Up to the Hatching Stage
TLDR
The similarity of the embryonic brain in Todarodes to the adult brain in Nautilus suggests that the coleoid brain has evolved on the basic plan as seen in the nautiloid brain.
The complete mitochondrial genomes of deep-sea squid (Bathyteuthis abyssicola), bob-tail squid (Semirossia patagonica) and four giant cuttlefish (Sepia apama, S. latimanus, S. lycidas and S.
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses using maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods suggest that traditional order Sepioidea (Sepiolida+Sepiida) is paraphyletic and Sepia (cuttlefish) has the sister-relationship with all other decapodiforms.
