Caption Laser light sheet illumination of particle tracks generated during forward, synchronous swimming by the siphonophore Nanomia bijuga. This type of synchronized jet production by all of the nectophores typically occurs during rapid escape responses from threatening stimuli or when the colony initially begins swimming from rest.
