According to palaeontological evidence, the Chaetognatha (arrow worms), a group of small marine predators that are major components of the zooplankton throughout our world oceans, were present already in the Early Cambrian (approx. – Myr years ago), namely, as Chengjiang biota, but have also been documented in the Middle Cambrian Burgess Shale.

Eight groups accounted for 95% of total abundance both in January (copepods, chaetognaths, euphausiids, amphipods, polychaetes, pteropods, fish larvae and decapods) and May (copepods, amphipods, chaetognaths, euphausiids, decapods, pteropods, fish larvae and gasteropods).

Introduction. Chaetognatha are transparent marine metazoans which live in all marine habitats and are an important group of carnivorous zooplankton in pelagic food shareholderdemocracy.com are active predators grasping prey with rigid shareholderdemocracy.com typical and numerically dominant prey of Chaetognatha are copepods, but larger organisms such as fish larvae, polychaets or euphausiids are also captured. CHAETOGNATHA ANGELES ALVARINO Cabrillo Avenue, La Jolla, California , U. S. A. I. INTRODUCTION Analyses of the anatomy of the gonads and of changes in their functional features (see Alvariiio, Volumes I and II) serve as useful tools to establish the behavioural and physiological aspects of reproduction in chaetognaths.
