Pelagic Snails: The Biology of Holoplanktonic Gastropod Mollusks
Detailed treatment is given on all known pelagic snails (aoubt 140 species) including: external anatomy, swimming and buoyancy mec.
Behavior of Antarctic Krill, Euphausia superba: Chemoreception, Feeding, Schooling, and Molting
Krill do not feed by passive, continuous filtration but use area-intensive searching and various rapid feeding behaviors to exploit local high food concentrations. Chemicals alone at low…
The physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of a stratified, saline, sulfide lake in Palau1
An unusual horizontal and vertical swimming behavior of Mastigias appears related to light and to the nutrient requirements of its symbiotic zooxanthellae, and other zooplankton show normal vertical diurnal migration patterns.
Metabolism of epipelagic tropical ctenophores
The metabolic rate of Eurhamphaea vexilligera was not measurably affected by short-term starvation or feeding (maximum 25 copepods 1-1), and the overall range between starved and well-fed B. vitrea was about two times for respiration and a factor of three for ammonium excretion.
The feeding rates of the pelagic tunicate Pegea confederata and two other salps1
Filtration rate per microgram of carbon increases with increasing body weight of salps in contrast to ascidians, perhaps because salps use muscular pumping than ciliary currents to transport water.
Underwater observations of gelatinous zooplankton : Sampling problems, feeding biology, and behavior1
The diversity and trophic complexity of epipelagic plankton communities have been underestimated by previous investigators.
Morphology and field behavior of pteropod molluscs: feeding methods in the families Cavoliniidae, Limacinidae and Peraclididae (Gastropoda: Thecosomata)
It is concluded that feeding with a large mucous web explains the presence of fragments of large, fast moving prey in the stomach contents of both pseudothecosomes and euthecosomes.
The response of the salp, Pegea confoederata, to high levels of particulate material: Starvation in the midst of plenty1
Because P. confoederuta feeds on oceanic average amounts of food, it can be more evenly distributed throughout the great oceanic central water masses, decreasing the likelihood of its discovery by predators.
