When the researchers set their creation free in an electrically conducting container of fluid and oscillated the voltage from zero volts to five, they shocked the Medusoid
into swimming with synchronized contractions that mimic those of real jellyfish.
A scratch circle origin for the medusoid
Erratic fluctutations in abundante of medusoid
and ctenophore populations in two systems, Ligurian Sea and Benguela ecosystem: some examples.
The localization of FMRFamide and tubulin immunoreactivity was best followed through a developmental sequence starting with the just-budded ephyra of Aurelia since the two stained subumbrellar networks showed very different relationships with the locomotory musculature in the early medusoid
The lack of a decline in arm muscle CS and ODH suggests either that deeper living species are utilizing arms for medusoid
swimming, or that species at all depths utilize arms for activities, such as defense or prey capture, that require similar metabolic potential regardless of habitat depth.
10A) It then moved away from the submersible, using a slow medusoid
Although the actual experimental treatment is the number of feedings per week, gastrovascular flow rate (the hypothetical physiological dose) is considered the predictor variable; morphological development relative to the timing of the sexual (medusoid
) phase of the life cycle is considered the response variable.
Furthermore, the Anthozoa have a simpler life cycle than other Cnidaria, lacking the presumably derived medusoid
stage that characterizes the Scyphozoa and the Hydrozoa.
With distinctive transparent bodies (above), the creature is often thought to be a jellyfish, but is actually a siphonophore - a colony of tiny specialised polyps and medusoids
