Reproduction of the sea anemone Anthopleura dixoniana (Haddon and Shackleton) from the high intertidal zone of southern Taiwan (120°41 ′E; 22°01′N) was studied from April 1987 through March 1989. A. dixoniana spawns once a year, in July, and divides asexually by longitudinal fission throughout the year, with a peak in July. During the spawning season, sea anemones>3 mm pedal dise diameter can be sexed, and display a 1:1 sex ratio. Dividing sea anemones are significantly larger than non-dividing… CONTINUE READING
