Bryozoans surface with some regularity on this list so members might be
interested in seeing the Fall 2002 issue of Southern Ponds. In it, there is
an article titled "Bryozoans - Moss Animals" by Graves Lowell. Its a pretty
good review of the biology of Pectinatella magnifica, the bryozoan that
forms large jelly balls we sometimes see when collecting fishes. The
article is illustrated with 5 excellent color photos of jelly ball colonies.
