Biologists Surprised by Unique Strategy of Self-Repair Discovered in Moon Jellyfish

In a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, marine biologists have found that, upon amputation, the moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) rearranges existing body parts and recovers radial symmetry within a few days. Many marine creatures, including some jellyfish species, can regenerate tissues in response to injury, and this trait [...] —> Read More
