The phylum Ctenophora (known as comb jellies) consists of gelatinous marine carnivores found from the surface to several thousand meters depth. Their morphology can be simple or complex, ranging from a sac-like shape with no tentacles to large lobed forms with sinuous "auricles," papillae, and two different kinds of tentacles. This diversity appears to reflect adaptations to many different diets. For example, some species can continuously "graze" on small crustaceans or larvae, others engulf… Expand
Cilia and the life of ctenophores
TLDR
Post-embryonic patterns of comb row development in larval and adult stages are described and compared with regeneration of comb plates after surgical removal, and ciliary coordination has been elucidated by experiments on a variety of ctenophores. Expand
Ecology and behavior of Bolinopsis infundibulum (Ctenophora; Lobata) in the Northeast Atlantic
TLDR
Results from field surveys with net sampling and video profiling, combined with laboratory experiments on feeding and growth, revealed the ecological function of Bolinopsis infundibulum in northern temperate coastal waters and indicated that the new generation of the year was recruited from February onwards. Expand
The giant deep-sea octopus Haliphron atlanticus forages on gelatinous fauna
TLDR
The first observations of the giant deep-sea octopus Haliphron atlanticus with prey are reported, using remotely operated vehicles, and stomach content analysis confirmed predation on cnidarians and gelatinous organisms. Expand
Benthic ctenophores (Platyctenida: Coeloplanidae) in South Florida: predator–prey interactions
TLDR
Field and laboratory observations and laboratory experiments revealed diverse invertebrate and fish taxa that prey on both ctenophore species, and add to the limited knowledge base of predator–prey dynamics in both C. waltoni and V. multiformis. Expand
Vampire squid: detritivores in the oxygen minimum zone

TLDR
Investigations on the feeding ecology and behaviour of Vampyroteuthis reveal a unique adaptation that allows these animals to spend most of their life at depths where oxygen concentrations are very low, but where predators are few and typical cephalopod food is scarce. Expand
A vanished history of skeletonization in Cambrian comb jellies
TLDR
This clade reveals a cryptic history and sheds new light on the early evolution of this basal animal phylum and is resolved as a monophyletic group (Scleroctenophora new class) within the ctenophores. Expand
CHARACTERIZING FUNCTIONAL BIODIVERSITY ACROSS THE PHYLUM CTENOPHORA USING PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENTS by Telissa
Characterizing functional biodiversity across the phylum Ctenophora using physiological measurements. Telissa M. Wilson Ctenophores are marine predators that are well known for their bioluminescenceExpand
The abundance of microplastics in cnidaria and ctenophora in the North Sea.
TLDR
This study demonstrates cnidarians and ctenophores, a largely overlooked group, are a potential route for MPs entry into food webs. Expand
Bonding Tactics in Ctenophores — Morphology and Function of the Colloblast System
TLDR
Ctenophores are a group of animals found in all the world’s seas, from coastal areas to the deep sea and from the tropics to the poles, and have a jelly-like appearance and distinctive rows of comb plates that are used for locomotion. Expand
Predation assessment of the invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi in a French Mediterranean lagoon
TLDR
The less mobile preys such as mollusks and barnacles were the most impacted and the ctenophore predation pressure on the zooplankton assemblage could lead at time to a release of grazing pressure on phytoplankon and favor the eutrophication of the lagoon. Expand

Abstract Oceanic ctenophores show aa great diversity in feeding biology, ranging from Leucothea multicornis , which can eat only small copepods, to species of Ocyropsis , which can capture and ingestExpand
Planktonic Feeding and Evolutionary Significance of the Lobate Body Plan Within the Ctenophora.
TLDR
The gut contents of individuals from two species, Bolinopsis infundibulum (Lobata) and Pleurobrachia pileus (Cydippida) were recorded and a pattern of prey partitioning between the ctenophore orders was evident. Expand
Modes of water manipulation by the lobate ctenophore Leucothea sp.
TLDR
The integration of all of these structures results in an organism that is more complex behaviorally than might be expected on the basis of its superficially simple and delicate body plan. Expand

Characteristics of cnidarians and ctenophores as predators and as prey of other gelatinous species are discussed. Expand

Predation among pelagic cnidarians and ctenophores is reviewed. The diets of semaeostome scyphomedusae and hydromedusae commonly include other gelatinous zooplanktivores. However, few species ofExpand
The feeding behavior of Beroe ovata
TLDR
Together, these two animal populations form an ecological feed-back system which affects other portions of the planktonic community and aids the predator in removing tissue from its prey, yielding maximum gain from each encounter. Expand
Feeding Ecology and Metabolism of the Antarctic Cydippid Ctenophore Callianira Antarctica
TLDR
Investigation of the chemical composition, metabolism, and feeding ecology of the cydippid ctenophore Callianira antarctica suggest that this species is an opportunistic predator that feeds both during the day and night, and appears to be well adapted to the prey patchiness found in Antarctic waters. Expand
Flow and feeding by swimming scyphomedusae
TLDR
The mechanics of capture by these species of diverse morphology and taxonomic affinity suggests that the use of bell pulsation-induced flow for prey entrainment and capture is widespread among the scyphomedusae. Expand
OBSERVATIONS OF THE FEEDING MECHANISM OF A CTENOPHORE, MNEMIOPSIS LEIDYI
TLDR
The mode of feeding was studied in young tentacled forms and in the adult Mnemiopsis leidyi, which entangle the food with the small tentacles along the tentacular ridge, and deposit it in the labial trough, whence it is carried to the mouth. Expand
