Antarctic marine benthic invertebrates: chemical ecology, bioactivity and biodiversity
El estudio antitumoral mas grande que jamas se haya hecho en este area con resultados muy prometedores para phyla como Chordata, Porifera y Cnidaria, entre otros confirman the importancia que los huesos de ballena pueden tener en el contexto of las aguas de poca profundidad of the Antartida. Expand
Turning the game around: toxicity in a nudibranch-sponge predator–prey association
It is concluded that the predator is chemically better protected than its prey, which suggests that its acquisition of chemical defenses reveals a defensive escalation. Expand
Chemical Defenses of the Sacoglossan Mollusk Elysia rufescens and Its Host Alga Bryopsis sp.
This is the first report of a diet-derived depsipeptide used as a chemical defense in a sacoglossan, and kahalalide F protects both Bryopsis sp. Expand
Phylogeny of the radula‐less dorids (Mollusca, Nudibranchia), with the description of a new genus and a new family
The phylogeny obtained supports the hypothesis that the radula has been lost once in the Doridina and that the Radula‐less dorids are a monophyletic group. Expand
List of the Worldwide Food Habits of Nudibranchs
The list of the worldwide food habits of nudibranchs was originally available on the web as a supplement to two articles published in the Veliger: McDonald & Nybakken, 1997 & 1999, so it is uploaded to eScholarship in order to make it available once again. Expand
Antarctic marine chemical ecology: what is next?
A number of interesting natural products have been isolated from Antarctic organisms and there is a need to extend the experiments to the field, as done in tropical and temperate marine ecosystems, to test the activity of the chemicals in natural conditions and ecologically meaningful interactions.

Natural Products Isolated From Species of Halgerda Bergh, 1880 (Mollusca: Nudibranchia) and Their Ecological and Evolutionary Implications
The identified a novel tryptophan derivative halgerdamine along with the known compounds trigonellin, esmodil, zooanemonin, and C2-α-D-mannosylpyranosyl-L-tryptophan from Halgerda aurantiomaculata, which support recent hypotheses regarding progressive evolution of opisthobranchs. Expand
Chemical Defenses of Cryptic and Aposematic Gastropterid Molluscs Feeding on their Host Sponge Dysidea granulosa
Despite contrasting color patterns displayed by the two gastropterid species, they seem to share a similar chemical defense strategy, i.e., they feed on D. granulosa and accumulate the major BDE of the sponge in their tissues. Expand
Species names and metaphyly: a case study in Discodorididae (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Euthyneura, Nudibranchia, Doridina)
A case study in Discodorididae (Mollusca, Gastropoda, Euthyneura, Nudibranchia, Doridina) —Zoologica Scripta, **, ***–***. Expand
The Fate of Lyngbya majuscula Toxins in Three Potential Consumers
The high levels of secondary metabolites observed in both the anaspidean and the cephalapsidean species suggest that these toxins may bioaccumulate through marine food chains. Expand
