Symbiosis Of Planktonic Copepods And Mysids With Epibionts And Parasites In The North Pacific: Diversity And Interactions
This chapter reviews various aspects of the biology of Argulus spp.
Tanaidacea (Crustacea: Peracarida) from Japan III. The deep trenches; the Kurile-Kamchatka Trench and Japan Trench
The tanaidacean species richness in the trenches was found to be remarkably higher than in shallow water, although numbers of individuals were rather small; this was compensated for by high taxonomic diversity.
Landscape versus local factors shaping butterfly communities in fragmented landscapes: Does host plant diversity matter?
Conversion of terrestrial land for the purposes of agriculture and urban development continues to result in loss and fragmentation of natural habitats. In this study, we focus on butterflies and…
Prodajus curviabdominalis n. sp. (Isopoda: Epicaridea: Dajidae), an ectoparasite of mysids, with notes on morphological changes, behaviour and life-cycle
Mature adults and larvae of a new ectoparasitic isopod are described from the mysid Siriella okadai Ii collected from the Seto Inland Sea, western Japan, and are distinguished from all other congeners by pleon of ovigerous female strongly curved dorsally, with large swellings on ventral side.
New record of a euphausiid ectoparasitic isopod, Heterophryxus appendiculatus G. O. Sars, 1885 (Crustacea: Dajidae) from Japan
This study provides additional information on this species, including a new host, description, coloration, and scanning electron micrographs, which distinguish this species from other congeners by the nearly straight frontal margin of the cephalon.
Two New Species Of Ectoparasitic Isopods (Isopoda, Dajidae) From Mysids In Japan
Pseudocaligus fugu is parasitic on the toxic skin of puffer fishes, which may indicate that it is endowed with some tolerance to TTX.
Tanaidacea (Crustacea: Peracarida) from Japan. II. Tanaidomorpha from the East China Sea, the West Pacific Ocean and the Nansei Islands
The Japanese shallow water fauna of tanaidomorphan Tanaidacea are examined. Seven new species Tumidochelia knighti, Mesotanais birdi, Leptognathia bamberi, Typhlotanais magdalensis, Typhlotanais…
DNA barcoding and morphological analyses revealed validity of Diadema clarki Ikeda, 1939 (Echinodermata, Echinoidea, Diadematidae)
Molecular identification performed in Japan determined five phenotypes in Diadema-sp according to the presence and/or shape of a white streak and blue iridophore lines in the naked space of the interambulacral area, indicating that Diadma-sp is identical to diadema clarki and a valid species.
Epimeria abyssalis sp. n. from the Kuril-Kamchatka Trench (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Epimeriidae)
A new deep-sea epimeriid is described from the Kuril-Kamchatka Trench, in the northwestern Pacific, with a short rostrum and a telson with deep and narrow Y-shaped excavation.
