Accumulation of copper and zinc by balanus amphitrite in a tropical estuary
@iBalanus amphitrite@@ (Cirripedia: Thoracica) a dominant fouling organism was analysed to assess the accumulation potentialities of copper and zinc. It was observed that it could accumulate Cu to 864.77 mu g g-1 dry wt. ...
Cryoperservation of Balanus amphitrite nauplii
(Academic Press, 1997)
The possibility of cryopreserving B. amphitrite (Cirripedia; thoracica) nauplii is explored. The effects on the postthaw survival of a range of cryobiological variables are reported; three different cryoprotectants (ethylene ...
Influence of bacterial exopolymers and the adult extract of Balanus amphitrite and Cthamalus sp. on cyprid metamorphosis of Balanus amphitrite
(US Office of Naval Research, 1997)
Settlement of barnacle, a major fouling organism is believed to be controlled to a great extent by substratum characteristics such as, presence of conspecific adults or "gregariousness" inducing factors. Exopolymers secreted ...
