... the spinal cord to express undulation patterns accommodated to various inputs into the networks. While these systems have been widely studied in vertebrate swimmers, their evolutionary origin along the chordate phylogeny remains unclear. Ascidians, representing a sister group of vertebrates, give rise...

...Di Jiang; Jason W. Tresser; Takeo Horie; Motoyuki Tsuda; William C. Smith SUMMARY Free-living animals and their larvae utilize light and gravity as cues to navigate in open space. Detection and response to these environmental stimuli are important for the dispersal and settlement of ascidian larvae...

...Claudette Rabinowitz; Baruch Rinkevich SUMMARY In the colonial growth of botryllid ascidians, blastogenesis (bud formation) is a cyclical and synchronized developmental process characterized by a weekly rhythm of budding and apoptotic events. Very little is known about this cycle regulation and its...

... the storm. A different group of benthic colonial animals, compound ascidians, provides another example of mechanical failure enhancing ecological performance. Compound ascidians compete effectively for space in benthic and epiphytic communities by overgrowing other organisms (e.g. Nandakumar et al...

...Anna F. Edlund; M. A. R. Koehl ABSTRACT Sessile, soft-bodied, compound ascidians are successful competitors for substrata in crowded benthic and epibiotic marine communities and can be effective colonists of new sites, through adult rafting and reattachment. Adhesion to the substratum is essential...
