A Functional Biology of Scyphozoa
  • M. Arai
  • Biology
  • Springer Netherlands
  • 30 November 1996
TLDR
The design and relationships of the orders: morphology and life cycles are studied, including the relationship between symbiont and host, as well as factors affecting rates of excretion. Expand
Interactions of pelagic cnidarians and ctenophores with fish: a review
Medusae, siphonophores and ctenophores (here grouped as `pelagic coelenterates') interact with fish in several ways. Some interactions are detrimental to fish populations, such as predation byExpand
Predation on pelagic coelenterates: a review
  • M. Arai
  • Biology
  • Journal of the Marine Biological Association of…
  • 1 June 2005
TLDR
Coelenterates (cnidaria and ctenophores) are well recognized as predators in food webs of marine ecosystems but are less often considered as prey but may provide sources of energy comparable to better recognized prey such as arthropods. Expand
Pelagic coelenterates and eutrophication: a review
  • M. Arai
  • Biology
  • Hydrobiologia
  • 1 May 2001
TLDR
Typically, the diversity of pelagic coelenterates decreases, but the biomass of a small number of species may increase, and Adaptations that may allow these species to survive under eutrophic conditions are discussed. Expand
Interactions of fish and pelagic coelenterates
TLDR
Recent studies with newer sampling methods indicate that the biomass of coelenterates, particularly large scyphomedusae, has been underestimated and much quantitative work needs to be done on the underestimation. Expand
The potential importance of podocysts to the formation of scyphozoan blooms: a review
TLDR
Podocysts are cysts with stored reserves of organic compounds produced beneath the pedal discs of polyps of scyphozoans in the orders Rhizostomae (suborder Dactyliophorae) and SemaeostomAE that contribute to increasing the number ofpolyps and also to survival through seasonal periods of reduced food availability or predation. Expand
Digestion of pelagic Ctenophora and Cnidaria by fish
TLDR
Given the rapid rates of digestion observed, coelenterates might rival arthropods as energy sources, and the necessity of examining fish stomachs very quickly after capture, gelatinous organisms have high water and salt content relative to their organic content. Expand
Interactions of pelagic cnidarians and ctenophores with fish: a review
TLDR
The interactions of medusae, siphonophores and ctenophores with fish range from beneficial for the gelatinous species (food, parasite removal), to negative (predation on them), and it becomes increasingly important to understand how they may influence the balance between pelagic coelenterates and fish.
