Summary The complex life cycles of colonial marine invertebrates provide an unusual opportunity to examine potential constraints in chemical defense because colonies are of ten chemically well defended, and the multiple developmental stages are accessible. Briareum asbestinum is unique among Caribbean gorgonians in surface brooding newly fertilized, conspicuously colored eggs and larvae; therefore, all developmental stages can be collected from the surface of a colony. In St. Croix, US Virgin… CONTINUE READING
