Cover ImageCover: An adult Elysia chlorotica (about 3 cm in length). Early in its life cycle, E. chlorotica feeds on the alga Vaucheria litorea and selectively retains the chloroplasts in cells that line its highly branched digestive tract. The mechanisms supporting establishment of the kleptoplasty and long-term functioning of the kleptoplasts remain active areas of investigation.
