Mnemiopsis leidyi and the implications for larval mortality.
have attracted considerable attention regarding their role in the evolution of nervous systems; yet we know little about their nervous systems due to limited electrophysiological data.
It is an evolutionarily conserved trait in animals, and there is evidence that this process is present in Cnidarians (like hydra) , Sponges , and Ctenophores
(also known as comb jellies) , organisms located at the base of the animal phylogenetic tree.
To convert ctenophore
biomass ([B.sub.ct]) into ctenophore
abundance ([N.sub.ct]), we assumed an average individual mass of 0.36 g per ctenophore

Better to live unlit and ostrich-like (a beached, unlikely survivor, the burier of an unhatched head), or as a ctenophore
, invisible in the ocean's indifferent embrace, as a glassy swimmer never seen by the sun?

A week later I read in Darwin's Audubon Weissmann's tribute to a remarkable mind, "Gertrude Stein and the Ctenophore
." Stein, he says, "changed forever the way we read the English language." Well perhaps.
