Nutrition in the Lower Metazoa contains the proceedings of a meeting held at the University of Caen, France on September 11-13, 1979. Organized into 14 chapters, this book begins with a discussion of the phagocytosis in Polycelis tenuis and adaptational aspects in feeding in freshwater triclads. Subsequent chapters explore selection in sponge feeding processes; nutrition in symbiotic Turbellaria; some effects of diet on the biology of the rotifers; and the role of nutrition in the establishment of the green hydra symbiosis. The phosphorus economy of the green hydra symbiosis and the nutrition of marine sponges are also explained.
