Where does the Mediterranean Sea begin? Zoogeographical affinities of the littoral sponges of the Straits of Gibraltar
A geographical study of the littoral sponges from the Straits of Gibraltar was undertaken, where the origin of these sponges is observed to be a transition between
Marine Sponges of the Region of Santa Marta (Colombia) Part I. Dictyoceratida and Yerongida
TLDR
Sponges from the Caribbean coast of Colombia were classified and described, an inventory which is the first of this geographic area, which contain 17 species of Dictyoceratida and Verongida. Expand
Common sponges of the Cayman Islands
Sponges are one of the most colourful and ubiquitous components of the coral reef community. Their morphological diversity and wide range of ecological tolerance make them an important part of theExpand
Desmacella austini sp. nov. from sponge reefs off the Pacific coast of Canada
TLDR
A new species of a very thinly encrusting Desmacella is described from Queen Charlotte Basin and Georgia Basin, off the Canadian Pacific coast, compared with all known species of the genus, differing in the geometry and size of spicules, and the persistent epizoic growth. Expand
More North Jamaican deep fore-reef sponges
A second investigation of the North Jamaican deep fore-reef slope, using mixed gas to reach depths from 70 m to a maximum of 107 m depth, revealed 43 species, 9 of which are new to science: ErylusExpand
ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF SPONGES (PORIFERA) FROM THE SOUTHERNMOST CARIBBEAN REEFS (NORTH-WEST GULF OF URABÁ), WITH DESCRIPTION OF NEW RECORDS FOR THE COLOMBIAN CARIBBEAN
TLDR
The North-West Gulf of Uraba, Colombia, harbors the southernmost Caribbean reefs, exposed to high turbulence and fluctuating turbidity and salinity, and an annotated systematic check-list of sponges from this area is presented, providing formal taxonomic description of 15 species, which are new records for the Colombian Caribbean.

Abundance and Distribution of Commensal Amphipods from Common Marine Sponges of Southeast Florida
Marine sponges were examined from southeast Florida and the Florida Keys to determine species composition and distribution of commensal amphipod crustaceans from shallow reef, mangrove, and seagrassExpand
Shallow-water Niphatidae (Haplosclerina, Haplosclerida, Demospongiae) from the São Sebastião Channel and its environs (tropical southwestern At- lantic), with the description of a new species
Two niphatids are described here: Amphimedon viridis and Pachychalina alcaloidifera sp. nov. Amphimedon viridis is a common and conspicuous species in most of the tropical western Atlantic.Expand

TLDR
This work provides new information on agelasid sponges found on the continental shelf off northern Brazil and cited for the first time off the mouth of the Amazon River. Expand

GENETIC ASSIMILATION OF AN ACQUIRED CHARACTER
TLDR
The purpose of the present communication is to describe an experiment in which the hypothesis that if an animal is subjected to unusual circumstances to which it can react in an adaptive manner, the development of the adaptive character might itself become so far canalised that it continued to appear even when the conditions returned to the previous norm.
