Global Diversity of Sponges (Porifera)
Results obtained demonstrate that regional approaches to analytical biogeography are at present more likely to achieve insights into the biogeographic history of sponges than a global perspective, which appears currently too ambitious.

Colation in Antarctic sponges may be the result of relict pigments originally selected for aposematism or UV screens yet conserved because of their defensive properties, supported by the bioactive properties of pigments examined to date in a suite of common Antarctic spongees.
Molecular evidence of cryptic speciation in the "cosmopolitan" excavating sponge Cliona celata (Porifera, Clionaidae).
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Marine Haplosclerida (Phylum Porifera) Employing Ribosomal (28S rRNA) and Mitochondrial (cox1, nad1) Gene Sequence Data
Gene trees generated using 28S rRNA, nad1 and cox1 gene data, under maximum likelihood and Bayesian approaches, are highly congruent and suggest the presence of four clades of marine Haplosclerida.
Global Coordination and Standardisation in Marine Biodiversity through the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) and Related Databases
The scale of the problems with species names, synonyms, and their classification is illustrated, and how WoRMS publishes online quality assured information on marine species is described to show increased taxonomic efficiency and quality control in marine biodiversity research and management.

The structure of caminoside A was elucidated by analysis of spectroscopic data and chemical degradation of the extract of the marine sponge Caminus sphaeroconia.
Isolation of azaspiracid-2 from a marine sponge Echinoclathria sp. as a potent cytotoxin.

A screening program aimed at discovering inhibitors of the bacterial type III secretion system identified the MeOH extract of the Caribbean sponge Caminus sphaeroconia as an active hit in the initial assay, leading to the isolation of caminosides A to D, a family of antimicrobial glycolipids.
