Ink utilization by mesopelagic squid
Remotely operated vehicle dive video recordings of deep-sea squid ink release were examined to determine species, ink release type, release depth, and accompanying behavior/s. Ink release wasExpand

Economy of arm autotomy in the mesopelagic squid Octopoteuthis deletron
Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) wer e used to obser ve and collect the meso pelagic squid Octopoteuthis deletron Young, 1972. I documented numer ous individuals with shortened, blunt-ended arms andExpand

Time-calibrated molecular phylogeny of pteropods
Pteropods are a widespread group of holoplanktonic gastropod molluscs and are uniquely suitable for study of long-term evolutionary processes in the open ocean because they are the only livingExpand

Indo-Pacific mushroom corals found on Jamaican reefs
The impact of non-native, or ‘‘exotic’’ species, is considered to be a leading cause of native species extinction and overall habitat degradation. This threat is well documented in many ecosystems,Expand

Near-field zooplankton, ice-face biota and proximal hydrography of free-drifting Antarctic icebergs
Abstract A small ROV was used to collect plankton, make video surveys and take hydrographic measurements in close proximity to six free-drifting, Antarctic icebergs. The icebergs studied ranged inExpand

First in situ observations of the deep-sea squid Grimalditeuthis bonplandi reveal unique use of tentacles
The deep-sea squid Grimalditeuthis bonplandi has tentacles unique among known squids. The elastic stalk is extremely thin and fragile, whereas the clubs bear no suckers, hooks or photophores. It isExpand

Bathyal feasting: post-spawning squid as a source of carbon for deep-sea benthic communities
In many oceanic carbon budgets there is a discrepancy between the energetic requirements of deep-sea benthic communities and the supply of organic matter. This suggests that there are unidentifiedExpand

First HOV Alvin study of the pelagic environment at Hydrographer Canyon (NW Atlantic)
Abstract Continental slope canyons off the United States Atlantic coast remain poorly studied, and in particular, the distributions of pelagic organisms in waters overlying these unique environmentsExpand

Defensive Behaviors of Deep-sea Squids: Ink Release, Body Patterning, and Arm Autotomy
The deep sea is the largest habitat on Earth and holds the majority of its' animal biomass. Due to the limitations of observing, capturing and studying these diverse and numerous organisms, little isExpand
