New blastozooids of Polyzoa vesiculiphora, the polysytelid ascidian are produced by pallial budding of three types depending on the method of “isolated bud” formation; stolonic, planktonic and intermediate types. Differences among each type of bud are attributed to behavior of test‐vessels composing a part of the bud. Isolated buds produced by each type are essentially equal in terms of their internal structures and their subsequent fate, and develop independently of their parent zooids. New… 
Novel budding mode in Polyandrocarpa zorritensis: a model for comparative studies on asexual development and whole body regeneration
TLDR
The anatomical description of P. zorritensis NED provides the foundation for future comparative studies on plasticity of budding and regeneration in tunicates and fundamental to start from a robust phylogenetic framework in order to select relevant species to compare.
STUDIES ON THE REPRODUCTION OF THREE SPECIES OF PEROPHORA (ASCIDIACEA)
TLDR
A new mode of asexual reproduction, termed "terminal budding," was found in P. japonica, and the branchial basket and digestive tract of a zooid disintegrate at the onset of brooding, and after sexual reproduction the whole zooid is resorbed.
Comparative studies on the circulatory system of the compound ascidians, Botryllus, Botrylloides and Symplegma
TLDR
The circulatory systems of four polystyelids, Botryllus schlosseri, B. primigenus,Botrylloides violaceus and Symplegma reptans, were compared and the original ampullae degenerate soon after metamorphosis and new Ampullae extend from the ventral epidermis of the oozooid.
Asexual Development of Ascidians: Its Biological Significance, Diversity, and Morphogenesis
TLDR
The evidences cited show that colonial ascidians have a great promise for the study of morphogenesis, especially pattern formation.
DEVELOPMENT OF SPATIAL ORGANIZATION IN PALLEAL BUDS OF THE COMPOUND ASCIDIAN, SYMPLEGMA REPTANS.
TLDR
Zooids began to feed and thus attained functional maturity after about two weeks of development from buds, and was characterized by the formation of a test vessel through which the bud received active bloodflow.
Pattern development in palleal buds of botryllid ascidians: Relation between parent and its buds in their body axes
TLDR
The axial relationship between a zooid and its palleal buds was observed in Symplegmo reptans, Metandrocarpa uedai, PolyandrocARPa misakiensis, and P. stolonifera, showing that the bud develops as if it knew the position on the parent lateral wall from which it has arisen.
Cell proliferation dynamics of somatic and germline tissues during zooidal life span in the colonial tunicate Botryllus primigenus
TLDR
This result strongly suggests that in B. primigenus undifferentiated progenitor cells are discernible from possible adult stem cells by the presence or absence of BpMyc.
The eventful history of nonembryonic development in tunicates.
TLDR
Tunicates, with their plastic evolution and diversity of budding, represent an ideal playground for evolutionary developmental biologists to unravel the genetic and molecular mechanisms regulating nonembryonic development, as well as to better understand how such a profound innovation in life-history has evolved in numerous metazoans.
Cell adhesion in the process of asexual reproduction of tunicates
TLDR
Tunicate homologs of cadherin and integrin genes have recently been isolated from Botryllus and Polyandrocarpa and their unique molecular characteristics are discussed in the context of roles that they play in cell adhesion in the process of tunicate budding.
