i'm asking out of general curiousity. it is hard to understand what an
individual is...the larva that settles asexually buds to form many zooids yes,
but are these individuals as well? My take on it is that the individual is the
colony as a whole...but some may see the colony as many individuals working
together. any thoughts on this?
