Note(s): To assess factors that influence depth regulation of sponge larvae, we documented ontogenetic changes in larval size and shape, lipid and protein content, skeletal development, and photoresponse in Sigmadocia caerulea, a shallow-water demosponge in the order Haplosclerida. We also measured size and biochemical differences among larvae from different parents to determlnc how depth regulation might vary across the population.
