Can encrusting seaweeds defend themselves? A new direction in marine ecology

Many plants in the terrestrial biomes can turn defences against herbivory on and off in response to specific cues from consumers or nearby herbivory events. This can modify the beha more...

The anatomy and physiology of the intertidal marine isopod Cirolana harfordi

The intertidal isopod is a remarkably successful scavenger and predator and yet almost nothing is known about its development, anatomy and physiology, so this animal presents a uniq more...
