Atlas of marine-fouling bryozoa of New Zealand ports and harbours
The biology of bryozoan larvae at the time of settlement and metamorphosis, the most critical and susceptible phase in marine fouling, as well as the invasive strategies of marine-fouling species are discussed.
Intertidal Bryozoa (Cheilostomata) of Ketchikan, Alaska
The number of species per site was within the range of values previously observed in a more extensive study at Kodiak, Alaska, suggesting both similar intertidal species richness at the two localities, and that sampling of other interTidal sites at Ketchikan would detect additional species.
Diversity and taxonomy of intertidal Bryozoa (Cheilostomata) at Akkeshi Bay, Hokkaido, Japan
The overall species richness of intertidal cheilostomes was two‐thirds that documented intertidally in a comparable study at Kodiak, Alaska, a locality 15° higher in latitude, and the lower richness at Akkeshi to differences in the nearshore marine environment between the two localities is attributed.
Diversity and taxonomy of rocky‐intertidal Bryozoa on the Island of Hawaii, USA
This study examines the diversity of bryozoans found at four rocky intertidal sites on the Island of Hawaii, USA, and provides descriptions and SEM illustrations for 32 species recorded, which include a new genus in the Family Stomachetosellidae and 10 new species.
Studies on Japanese Anascan Bryozoa 9 : Division Malacostega (7)
Three species, Chaperia acanthina, Cli(ipertlopsis transwersalis and Chaperiopsis lbatula are clescribed from Japan. The critical limitation of the two genus Chctperia and Chaperiopsis in the family…
Revision of seven species of Microporella (Bryozoa, Cheilostomatida) from Hokkaido, Japan, using new taxonomic characters
In addition to the traditional taxonomic characters contained in the calcareous skeleton of mature zooids, other new characters from the chitinous appendages, ancestrulae, and early astogeny are introduced and recommended for standard descriptions.
Paralytic toxicity in the ribbon worm Cephalothrix species (Nemertea) in Hiroshima Bay, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan and the isolation of tetrodotoxin as a main component of its toxins.
First report of kinorhynchs from Hokkaido, Japan, including a new species of Pycnophyes (Pycnophyidae: Homalorhagida)
We describe and illustrate Pycnophyes oshoroensis sp. nov. from Hokkaido, northern Japan. This species is characterized by (1)a trunk 646–775μm long, and a presence of (2) middorsal elevation on…
Freshwater Bryozoa of Lake Biwa, Japan
An encrusting ctenostome was identified as a new species, Hislopia prolixa, on the basis of zooid size and morphology, tentacle number, budding pattern, and gut morphology, which was also collected from various other localities in Japan.
