Individuals (called zooids) are connected in colonies. Colonies grow by budding new zooids at colony edges. Not only do bryozoans make up the natural filtration systems of freshwater and marine environments, straining out excess food and debris particles to help keep the water clean, but they may also have medicinal properties and their fossil record may help us understand climate change.
