The control of metamorphosis in the pollution-indicating polychaete Capitella teleta

Burns, Robert.

Abstract: The larvae of many marine invertebrates are planktonic and must disperse within the tides and currents of the ocean. The adults of these invertebrate species are often sessile and their planktonic larvae act as the dispersal mechanism for their species. Several biological aspects of the larvae themselves can influence potential dispersal distances and species distributions. One of the le... read more
