The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
Global Diversity of Brittle Stars (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea)
This review presents a comprehensive overview of the current status regarding the global diversity of the echinoderm class Ophiuroidea, focussing on taxonomy and distribution patterns, with brief…
Evolution of mate-choice copying: a dynamic model
- S. Stöhr
- BiologyAnimal Behaviour
- 1 April 1998
A 2-year dynamic model demonstrates that mate-choice copying may evolve, when young females are poor at discrimination and need to learn what high-quality males look like, as long as there are sufficient differences in quality for mate choice to be meaningful.
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.
New records and new species of Ophiuroidea (Echinodermata) from Lifou, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia

This is a taxonomic account of the brittle stars found at the island of Lifou, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia, in November of 2000, and three species and a subspecies are revised, one of them placed in a new genus.
Who's who among baby brittle stars (Echinodermata: Ophiuroidea): postmetamorphic development of some North Atlantic forms
- S. Stöhr
- 1 April 2005
The ophiuroid skeleton continues to develop well beyond metamorphosis and small juveniles often lack many of the characters used to identify adult specimens, so accurate descriptions of postlarvae and their development are therefore necessary to match them to their adult conspecifics.
Morphological diagnoses of higher taxa in Ophiuroidea (Echinodermata) in support of a new classification
A new classification of Ophiuroidea, considering family rank and above, is presented and the family Ophiobyrsidae Matsumoto, 1915, not yet discovered in the previous publication, is added, based on new molecular data.

A non-lekking population of Black Grouse Tetrao tetrix
In a two-year study of an area in central Sweden a population of Black Grouse Tetrao tetrix was found in which displaying males were not clustered on leks. The study area which covered approximately…
