Studies on the host parasite relationship between the parasitic prosobranch Thyca crystallina and the asteroid starfish Linckia laevigata
There is evidence of an extended parasite breeding period and repetitive settlement on the hosts, which could cause the observed overdispersion without invoking a mature female parasite pheromone.
Patterns of Asexual Reproduction in the Fissiparous Seastar Coscinasterias acutispina (Asteroidea: Echinodermata) in Japan
The process of asexual reproduction in C. acutispina appears to be governed by intricate interactions among several factors, including parasitism by D. okadai, nutrient conditions, and high temperature.
Purification and Partial Characterization of an Autotomy-Promoting Factor from the Sea Star Pycnopodia helianthoides
In this study, an autotomy-promoting factor (APF) has been isolated from the fluids released by scalded or autotomizing sea stars and when injected into the coleom, APF elicits a complex behavioral response that culminates within minutes in multiple arm autotomy and a generalized softening of the body wall.
Studies of the biology of the West Indian copepod Ophiopsyllus reductus (Siphonostomatoida: Cancerillidae) parasitic upon the brittlestar Ophiocomella ophiactoides
The siphonostome copepod Ophiopsyllus found on the brittlestar Ophiocomella ophiactoides at Discovery Bay, Jamaica damages the host in such a way as strongly to suggest that it is feeding on the
Asexual reproduction as a means of population maintenance in the coral reef asteroid Linckia multifora on Guam
Individuals of the comet phase represent the highest percentage for population samples collected throughout the year from several sites on Guam, indicating a continuous asexual reproduction through which populations of L. multifora are being maintained.
