BackgroundHydroids were identified from extensive surveys of benthos, and especially from worm tubes, in the Danshuei River estuary (DRE), in the northeast Taiwan Strait (NETS), and on a reef in Nanwan Bay (NWB), Taiwan.ResultsA total of 33 species (12 of them identified to generic and 1 to family rank only), referable to 22 genera, 12 families, and 2 orders, were distinguished. The majority of them were referable to order Leptothecata (84.8%) with the remainder being assigned to order…

Influence of Kuroshio water on the annual copepod community structure in an estuary in the northwest Pacific Ocean
Copepod species assemblages showed seasonal succession and varied drastically with tidal change, indicating that copepod diversity in the LRE was influenced mainly by seawater.

Hydroids (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) from Shallow-Water Environments Along the Caribbean Coast of Panama
—Hydroids were examined in three different collections of specimens, acquired in 1969, 2002, and 2004, from the Caribbean coast of Panama. Eighteen stations were sampled in the Bocas del Toro area,

An account is given of 48 species identified in a small collection of hydroids from the west coast of Sweden. Assigned to39 genera and 18 families, most are well-known from boreal waters of the North
Hydroids (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) of Coral Reefs: Preliminary Results on Community Structure, Species Distribution and Reproductive Biology in Juan de Nova Island (Southwest Indian Ocean)
The first field investigation of the marine life at Juan de Nova gave an opportunity to study hydroid diversity in April-May 2004, with species richness high, with 95 species belonging to 26 families and 44 genera, with three families particularly diverse.
Hydroids from the John Murray Expedtion to the Indian Ocean, with revisory notes on Hydrodendron, Abietinella, Cryptolaria and Zygophylax (Cnidaria: Hydrozoa)
The 44 species identified in the John Murray hydroid collection were identified, obtained from the Gulf of Aden, the Arabian Sea and the northern part of the Indian Ocean, largely from deep water localities, and were assigned to 2 families of athecate and 6 families of thecate hydroids.

In the present paper, samples of medusae collected from the upwelling region of Minnan-Taiwan Bank, Luoguan Bay, varied Island waters of Fujian from 1985 to 2001. Four new species of Leptomedusae
Molecular Evidence Shows Low Species Diversity of Coral-Associated Hydroids in Acropora Corals
A novel symbiosis between scleractinians and hydroids (Zanclea spp.) was recently discovered using taxonomic approaches for hydroid species identification, suggesting that a cosmopolitan and probably genus-specific association occurs between ZancleA hydroids and their coral hosts.
Seasonality of the copepod assemblages associated with interplay waters off northeastern Taiwan
Results of one-way ANOVA revealed that the number of copepod species, indices of richness, evenness, and Shannon–Wiener diversity differed significantly in five different cruises.
Long-term changes in hydroid (Cnidaria, Hydrozoa) assemblages: effect of Mediterranean warming?
Data strongly suggest that the Portofino hydroid assemblage reacted to the water temperature increase found in the Mediterranean Sea, and shallow summer species widened their bathymetric distribution, reaching deeper levels.
First record of a color variation of Cuthona diversicolor (Tergipedidae: Aeolidina) feeding on the hydroid, Aglaophenia cupressina, on a north sulawesi (indonesia) coral reef
Pictures on this page shows a color variation of the nudibranch Cuthona diversicolor (Baba, 1975), (Tergipedidae: Aeolidina) previously only known to be distributed from Hong Kong to Japan, feeding on A. cupressina, at a depth of 8 m during the night on a patch reef in a wide sandy bay off Kalasey (south of Manado).
