Role of the larval feeding morphology and digestive enzyme activity in the early development of the polychaete Boccardia wellingtonensis
In marine invertebrates, the modes of development at early stages are related to the type and capacity of larval feeding to achieve growth. Therefore, studying the factors that determine larval feeding strategies can help ...
Bioenergetics of parental investment in two polychaete species with contrasting reproductive strategies: the planktotrophic Boccardia chilensis and the poecilogonic Boccardia wellingtonensis (Spionidae)
(Marine Ecology, 2020)
The level of parental investment for larval nutrition may determine the life cycle in marine invertebrate species laying egg masses or capsules, where the food available for enclosed individuals would determine time and ...
