The comparative electrobiology of gelatinous zooplankton
Abstract:The organization and composition of the nervous systems of representative members of the gelatinous zooplankton are described to provide a background for a discussion of the control of locomotion in these animals. The photoreceptive capabilities of these animals are then discussed and finally, the distribution, properties and functions of representative epithelial conduction systems are described. The overall aim is to provide a comparative overview of the electrobiology of gelatinous zooplankton, organisms found at either extreme of nervous system phylogeny but, despite this, organisms with remarkably similar behaviors and behavioral controls.
