Zooid size parallels contemporaneous oxygen isotopes in a large colony of Pentapora foliacea (Bryozoa)

Abstract

The relationship between seasonal changes in temperature and the size of zooids within cheilostome bryozoans is explored by comparing zooid size and contemporaneous carbonate mineralogy within a single colony of a perennial species that grew in a highly seasonal environment. Previously published oxygen isotope profile data from two fronds of a large colony… (More)
