Influence of diatom exopolymers and biofilms on metamorphosis in the barnacle Balanus amphitrite
(Inter Research, 2005)
Natural biofilms constitute a complex network of microorganisms (bacteria, diatoms, protozoa, fungi) and their extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), which influence settlement inbenthic invertebrates. The influence of ...
Influence of food concentration, temperature and salinity on the larval development of Balanus amphitrite
Influence of food concentration (0.5, 1 and 2 x 10 sup(5) cell ml sup(-1) of Skeletonema costatum), temperature (20 and 30 degrees C) and salinity (15, 25 and 35 ppt) on the larval development of Balanus amphitrite ...
Comparison of nutritional status of field and laboratory reared Balanus amphitrite Darwin (Cirripedia: Thoracica) larvae and implication of starvation
Experiments were carried out to evaluate the influence of rearing temperature and food concentration (20 and 30 degrees C, 1x10 sup(5) and 2x10 sup(5) cells ml sup(-1)) on the starvation threshold and nucleic acid content ...
Larval development and metamorphosis in Balanus amphitrite Darwin (Cirripedia; Thoracica): Significance of food concentration, temperature and nucleic acids
The influence of food concentration (Chaetoceros calcitrans at 1 x 10 sup(5) and 2 x 10 sup(5) cells ml sup(-1)) and temperature (20 degrees C and 30 degrees C) on the nucleic acid content of the nauplii and the cyprids ...
The impact of food type, temperature and starvation on larval development of Balanus amphitrite Darwin (Cirripedia: Thoracica)
The impact of diatom food species (Chaetoceros calcitrans and Skeletonema costatum), temperature and starvation on the larval development of Balanus amphitrite was evaluated. Starvation threshold levels for different ages ...
Factors regulating the production of different inducers in Pseudomonas aeruginosa with reference to larval metamorphosis in Balanus amphitrite
Gregarious settlement in barnacles has been related to the settlement-inducing compounds from adult conspecifics, bacteria in the biofilms, and their interaction. Elucidation of larval settlement cues from these sources ...
