...Aimee Ellison; Amara Pouv; Douglas A. Pace ABSTRACT Food-induced morphological plasticity, a type of developmental plasticity, is a well-documented phenomenon in larvae of the echinoid echinoderm, Dendraster excentricus . A recent study in our lab has shown that this morphological plasticity is...

However, the P 0 fecundity of both sexes decreased in proportion to the amount of oil fed. The F 1 larvae from each P 0 were then exposed from 3 hpf to 5 dpf to oil in...

... although the general structure of the heart and its ostia are similar across life stages, the heart-associated alary muscles are significantly less robust in larvae. Furthermore, unlike the adult ostia, which are the entry points for hemolymph into the heart, the larval ostia are almost entirely lacking in...
