Evidence of a chemical defense mechanism in the echiuran worm bonellia viridis echiura bonelliidae






Marine Behaviour & Physiology 6(4): 257-268

Evidence of a chemical defense mechanism in the echiuran worm bonellia viridis echiura bonelliidae

Evidence for the existence of chemical defense in the echiuran B. viridis is provided by investigating the palatability of Bonellia tissues to the shrimp Palaemon elegans, the teleosts Oblada melanura and Mugil labeo, and the anthozoan Anemonia sulcata. Bonellia tissues are highly distasteful to the shrimp. The results with the teleosts and the anthozoan are less clear-cut, though Bonellia extracts are also distasteful to these species.
