Abstract

Patterns in biology can be considered as predetermined or arising from a selforganizing instability. Variability in the pattern can, thus, be interpreted as a trace of instability, growing out from noise. Studying this variability can, thus, hint toward an underlying morphogenetic mechanism. Here, we present the variability of the gastrovascular system of the jellyfish Aurelia. In this variability emerges a typical biased reconnection between canals and timecorrelated reconnections. Both phenomena can be interpreted as traces of mechanistic effects, the swimming contractions on the tissue surrounding the gastrovascular canals, and the mean fluid pressure inside them. This reveals the gastrovascular network as a model system to study the morphogenesis of circulation networks and the morphogenetic mechanisms at play.
