Functional morphology of the cirripede
cypris: a comparative approach.
This same synchrony has also been observed in other cirripedes
, such as P.
1-3) in the attachment organs of nine species of cirripede
cyprids representing a wide range of substrata and habitats: 1) shape of the attachment disc (ratio of short to long axis), 2) angle to the substratum, and 3) density of cuticular villi on the disc surface Factor Kruskal-Wallis test/ANOVA Ratio of short to long axis H = 45.
The cypris larvae of the cirripedes
are planktonic, and when they fall on rocks they attach themselves by means of a cement-like substance secreted by glands in the first antennae.
His work on the "dwarf males" of cirripedes
provides an unequivocal case of terminal stages being deleted in ontogeny.
The nine years of work on cirripedes
is the most extravagant example of this characteristic of Darwin's work.
Like planktonic crustaceans, the sessile barnacles, the Cirripedes
, as a group are not uniquely associated with coral reefs.
Adsorbed layers: the stimulus to settlement in Cirripedes
This species, shown here on a patch of the seaweed Jania rubens, eats polychaetes, mollusks, and cirripedes
