Abstract

Many species of the opisthobranch mollusk Aplysia form breeding aggregations during the reproductive season. The aggregations contain both mating and egg-laying animals, and are associated with egg cordons. Mating studies showed that both animal-derived and cordon-derived factors induce mating, and that the animal-derived factors are associated with both egg layers and nonlayers. -from Authors
