Holocene sponge bioherms on the western Canadian continental shelf
Abstract Bioherms dominated by hexactinellid sponges occur in the three major troughs which cross the north-central continental shelf of British Columbia, Canada. The preferred substrate of theExpand
Simultaneous spawning of six species of echinoderms in Barkley Sound
A clip for aiding the attachment of plasterboard to structural columns and the like comprising a box section having a spring flap formed integrally therewith and the box section provides attaching surfaces for sheet metal screws. Expand
Growth and morphology of a reef-forming glass sponge, Aphrocallistes vastus (Hexactinellida), and implications for recovery from widespread trawl damage
Measurements are presented on one species found on the reefs, Aphrocallistes vastus Schulze 1887, measuring growth rates, the sizes of larger sponges, indicators of successful recruitment, and the form spongees can take under various environmental conditions. Expand
An extraordinary new carnivorous sponge, Chondrocladia lyra, in the new subgenus Symmetrocladia (Demospongiae, Cladorhizidae), from off of northern California, USA
Symmetrical development of uniserial branched stolons (the vanes) characterized members of the new subgenus Symmetrocladia, described from northeast Pacific sites at Escanaba Ridge and Monterey Canyon at depths of 3316–3399 m. Expand
New taxa and arrangements within the family Latrunculiidae (Demospongiae, Poecilosclerida).
Extensive new collections of latrunculid sponges from British Columbia, the Aleutian Islands, and the Gulf of Alaska, have extended the distributions of known species and several new species of Latrunculia were discovered within these collections, including sympatric species Lat Runculia hamanni sp.
