ArticleGrowing with the flow: on the maintenance and malleability of colony form in the hydroid HydractiniaDudgeon, Steven R.The extent of genetic predetermination and hence the limits of developmental plasticity of phenotypes are largely unknown. In this context, we address a prominent theme of morphological variation in clonal organisms: the relative investment in vascula . . .
ArticleVaisnys, J. RimasCnidarian colonies, while simple metazoans lacking true organs, all share one colony-wide system of physiological integration, the gastrovascular system. The circulation of gastrovascular fluid is responsible for the distribution of metabolites within . . .
ArticleDudgeon, Steven R.Time-lapse video microscopy and image analysis algorithms were used to generate high-resolution time series of the length and volume of a single hydrozoan polyp before and after feeding. A polyp of Podocoryne carnea prior to feeding is effectively sta . . .
