Finally, in addition to meroplanktonic forms, we found a juvenile of the lancet Branchiostoma, and new holoplanktonic records represented by four members of Tunicata: three appendicularians and one salp.
Appendicularians (Tunicata) of Banco Chinchorro, Caribbean Sea.
Individual growth model for the appendicularian Oikopleura dioica.
Here we test the hypothesis that age of a specific developmental stage in the urochordate appendicularian Oikopleura dioica Fol, 1872, can be predicted from the number of endostyle cells and temperature, thus serving as such a reference system.
Taxonomic identification of appendicularians collected in the epipelagic waters off northern Chile (Tunicata, Appendicularia).
Food web structure and trophic dynamics of a subtropical plankton community, with an emphasis on appendicularians (Tesis de Doctorado).
Early histological studies addressed notochord development to the larval stage in the appendicularians
Oikopleura dioica and Oikopleura longicauda (Fol, 1872; Seeliger, 1893; Martini 1909).
In situ feeding habits of Oncaea (Copepoda: Poe cilostomatoida) from the upper 250 m of the central Red Sea, with special reference to consumption of appendicularian
are one of the most abundant and frequent zooplankters in coastal tropical environments (Alldredge 1972, 1976, Sato et al.
Paffenhofer (1970) described a rotating culture apparatus used very successfully for copepods, appendicularians
, and doliolids, which has been modified to various degrees (e.g., Sato et al., 2001; Gibson and Paffenhofer, 2000).
Intensive predation on patches of unidentified fish eggs and appendicularians
was observed in two specific hauls in northern and southern sectors of the study area respectively.
Between the zooplankton groups, the appendicularians
showed an association with high values of precipitation, salinity and temperature.
