Larval development, sensory mechanisms and physiological adaptions in acorn barnacles with special reference to Balanus amphitrite
Barnacles have drawn the attention of many naturalists and often dominate fouling communities. Balanus amphitrite, is a shallow water acorn barnacle capable of inhabiting expanses from supralittoral to subtidal levels, and ...
Starvation threshold of Balanus amphitrite larvae in relation to temperature
(US Office of Naval Research, 1997)
Energy content in the non-feeding (lecithotrophic) cyprid larvae of B. amphitrite plays an important role in determining its metamorphic characteristics. In this context it is important to understand the energy transformed ...
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 ...
