A variety of Antarctic marine invertebrates contains secondary metabolites that may provide defense against potential predators. However, only in a few cases have tissues, extracts or isolated compounds of these invertebrates been tested against sympatric predators. The Antarctic nudibranch Bathydoris hodgsoni Eliot, 1907 contains hodgsonal, a compound only present in the external body (mantle tissues), which may protect the slugs from predators. To test this defensive hypothesis for hodgsonal… CONTINUE READING
