[Eric R Kandel]. Opisthobranch molluscs are an extremely interesting group of animals, displaying a wide diversity in shape, colour and life strategies. Chemical ecology of this group is particularly appealing since most species have a reduced or absent shell and have developed chemical defences to avoid : R.

Gibson, R. Atkinson, J. Gordon. Aplysiology. (Book Reviews: Behavioral Biology of Aplysia. A Contribution to the Comparative Study of Opisthobranch Molluscs). Opisthobranch means " gills behind" (and to the right) of the heart.

In contrast, Prosobranch means gills in front (of the heart). Opisthobranchs are characterized by two pairs of tentacles and a single gill behind and to the right of the heart.

Opisthobranchia are known from as (unranked): clade Heterobranchia, informal group. Opisthobranch are marine mollusks that are scarcely protected by a shell, which suggests that they possess defensive substances. For instance, when the Pacific aglajid Navanax inermis is damaged by enemies, it secretes a bright-yellow water-insoluble mixture into its slime trail.

From the extracts, three major compounds have been isolated and identified as polyenic compounds 51–   The anatomy and biology of alcyonarian-feeding aeolid opisthobranch molluscs and their development of symbiosis with zooxanthellae W.

Abstract. This chapter covers the synthetic aspects of both linear or cyclic peptides and depsipeptides isolated from opisthobranch molluscs. In many cases, synthetic effort not only determined the absolute stereostructure of these compounds but also made it possible to supply sufficient amounts for the evaluation of pharmacological by: 1.

Nudibranch molluscs are the most commonly cited examples of aposematism in marine ecosystems, but the evidence for this has been contested, mostly because few examples of mimicry are seen among species, many species are nocturnal or cryptic, and bright colours at the red end of the spectrum are rapidly attenuated as a function of water : Gastropoda.

Pteropods are free-swimming pelagic sea snails and sea are marine opisthobranch gastropods. Are they a natural group. The monophyly of Pteropoda is the subject of debate. At present, by molecular studies, the group is monophyletic. Pteropoda has two clades Thecosomata, the sea butterflies, and Gymnosomata, the sea Thecosomata have a shell, while the Class: Gastropoda.

Book Description. With increasing interest in the field and its relevance in global environmental issues, Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review provides authoritative reviews that summarize results of recent research in basic areas of marine research, exploring topics of special and topical importance while adding to new areas as they arise.

ADVERTISEMENTS: The nervous system in Molluscs (Figs. ) presents numerous diversities. It exhibits gradual coming up of complexi­ties from simple to complex which can be marshalled into one perspective—the nerv­ous co-ordination.

About this Item: 'British Prosobranch Molluscs' is the sort of book that is rarely ever published now. It covers in huge detail the biology of this group of animals with particular emphasis on the anatomy, but much also on functional physiology, ecology and evolutionary relationships.Hermaphroditism: a form of sexual reproduction in which both partners can act as the "female" or "male".

For example, the great majority of tunicates, pulmonate snails, opisthobranch snails and slugs are hermaphrodites. Parthenogenesis: a type of asexual reproduction in which the offspring develops from unfertilized eggs.BACKGROUND: In general shell-less slugs are considered to be slimy animals with a rather dull appearance and a pest to garden plants.

But marine slugs usually are beautifully coloured animals belonging to the less-known Opisthobranchia. They are char.
