...Aimee Ellison; Amara Pouv; Douglas A. Pace ABSTRACT Food-induced morphological plasticity, a type of developmental plasticity, is a well-documented phenomenon in larvae of the echinoid echinoderm, Dendraster excentricus . A recent study in our lab has shown that this morphological plasticity...

.... Transparent, pelagic animals must therefore deal with the trade-off between the ability to see and the ability of other animals to see them. Stomatopod larvae, like many transparent crustaceans, possess specialized optics in their compound eyes that minimize the volume of the opaque retina. Though the volumes...

...Peter J. Simmons; Julieta Sztarker; F. Claire Rind SUMMARY Insect larvae clearly react to visual stimuli, but the ability of any visual neuron in a newly hatched insect to respond selectively to particular stimuli has not been directly tested. We characterised a pair of neurons in locust larvae...

...Peter Rombough; Holly Drader SUMMARY The role of hemoglobin (Hb) in O 2 uptake by zebrafish larvae ranging in age from 5 to 42 days postfertilization was assessed under conditions of normoxia, moderate hypoxia and extreme hypoxia. This was achieved by exposing larvae with and without functional Hb...

... dramatically during acid exposure. In alkaline media, drinking rates were quite low. Larvae in pH 11 media excreted net acid (0.12 nequiv H + g –1 h –1 ) and the pH indicators azolitmin and bromothymol blue revealed that the rectal lumen is acidic in vivo at all ambient pH values. The anal papillae (AP) were...

My analysis shows that predilection to defensively regurgitate is closely associated with fore- and midgut morphology. Species that primarily regurgitate...

... implications. As larvae, zebrafish alternate their pectoral fins during slow swimming (0.011±0.001 mm ms –1 ) in conjunction with axial undulations of the same frequency (18–28 Hz). During fast swimming (0.109±0.030 mm ms –1 ; 36–67 Hz), the fins are tucked against the body and propulsion occurs by axial...
