The aquiferous system of Scolymastra joubini (Porifera, Hexactinellida) studied by corrosion casts


The aquiferous system of the hexactinellid sponge Scolymastra joubini was studied by corrosion casts in specimens from 30 m depth in Terra Nova Bay (Ross Sea, Antarctica). The aquiferous system of hexactinellids is traditionally considered different from that of Demospongiae, lacking a true canal organisation, with water percolating through a trabecular net… (More)
