Sea anemones bear live young, nurture them

Public Release: 22-Apr-2016
Live-bearing anemone undergoes major shifts in nutrition as young develop
Brooding anemone uses multiple feeding strategies to nourish young

The offspring of a brooding sea anemone transition from using egg yolks to pre-natal, then post-natal, parental feeding during their development, according to a study published April 22, 2016 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Annie Mercier from Memorial University, Canada, and colleagues.
