Some observations on the epizoic
barnacle Octolasmis angulatawithin the branchial chambers of an Australian swimming crab.
diatoms on the euphausiid Nyctiphanes australis: consequences for gut pigment analyses of whole krill.
Predation by asteroids, escape response, and morphometries of scallops with epizoic
Dwarf males in the epizoic
barnacle Octolasmis unguisiformis and their implications for sexual system evolution.
a new Onuphid (Polychaeta: Onuphidae) epizoic
on the thorny oyster Spondylus princeps unicolor.
We estimated size and incidence of epizoic
animals on 9105 sponges, black corals, and gorgonians.
Many decapods have specialized structures for keeping the body free of epizoic
growth, but grooming behaviors and time spent grooming vary considerably among species (Bauer, 1981, 1989).
Faunistic studies on marine ciliates from the Antarctic benthic area, including descriptions of one epizoic
form, 6 new species, and 2 new genera (Protozoa: Ciliophora).
This study concludes that, where present, epizoic
barnacles represent a significant reservoir for bacteria within shellfish beds and, therefore, have the capacity to act as vectors for human pathogens.
Correlation of epizoic
ciliates of Gammarus pulex and freshwater quality.
Further reductions in unionid abundance would also affect the epizoic
invertebrate fauna which lives on the shells of the bivalves; this epizoic
fauna has not been studied previously.
Differences between epilithic and epizoic
hydroid assemblages from commercial scallop grounds in the Bay of Fundy, northwest Atlantic.
