Quantification of cuttlefish (Sepia officinalis) camouflage : a study of color and luminance using in situ spectrometry
Cephalopods are renowned for their ability to adaptively camouflage on diverse backgrounds. Sepia officinalis camouflage body patterns have been characterized spectrally in the laboratory but not in the field due to the ...
An unexpected diversity of photoreceptor classes in the longfin squid, Doryteuthis pealeii
(Public Library of Science, 2015-09-09)
Cephalopods are famous for their ability to change color and pattern rapidly for signaling and camouflage. They have keen eyes and remarkable vision, made possible by photoreceptors in their retinas. External to the eyes, ...
Creation of the Marine Resource Center at MBL
The creation of the Station Biologique de Roscoff In France in 1859 heralded a century of study of marine animals. In the US, Congress created the U.S. Commission of Fish and Fisheries in 1871 to investigate declining fish ...
Scientific names of organisms : attribution, rights, and licensing
(BioMed Central, 2014-02-04)
As biological disciplines extend into the ‘big data’ world, they will need a names-based infrastructure to index and interconnect distributed data. The infrastructure must have access to all names of all organisms if it ...
Bryostatin enhancement of memory in Hermissenda
(Marine Biological Laboratory, 2006-06)
Bryostatin, a potent agonist of protein kinase C (PKC), when administered to Hermissenda was found to affect acquisition of an associative learning paradigm. Low bryostatin concentrations (0.1 to 0.5 ng/ml) enhanced memory ...
Neural control of tuneable skin iridescence in squid
Fast dynamic control of skin coloration is rare in the animal kingdom, whether it be pigmentary or structural. Iridescent structural coloration results when nanoscale structures disrupt incident light and selectively reflect ...
Microstructural and biochemical characterization of the nanoporous sucker rings from Dosidicus gigas
Recent interest in the development of environmentally benign routes to the synthesis of novel multifunctional materials has resulted in numerous investigations into structure-function relationships of a wide range of ...
