Effect of pH on survival, reproduction, egg viability and growth rate of five closely related rotifer species
In the laboratory we examined the effect of pH (5–10 with one interval) on survival, reproduction, egg viability and growth rate (intrinsic growth rate—rm and population growth rate—r) of five… Expand
Effects of chronic exposure to nonylphenol on locomotor activity and social behavior in zebrafish (Danio rerio).
Nonylphenol (NP), a xenoestrogen ubiquitously found in aquatic ecosystems, is of high environmental concern. The present work assessed the effects of exposure to NP on locomotor activity and social… Expand

Understanding the responses of animals to acute heat stress can help to reveal and predict the effect of more frequent extreme hot weather episodes on animal populations and ecosystems in the content… Expand
Effects of temperature on food consumption, growth and oxygen consumption of freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii (de Man 1879) postlarvae
Effects of temperature on food consumption, growth and oxygen consumption were estimated for the freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii postlarvae at 23 °C, 28 °C and 33 °C in the laboratory. The… Expand
Polymorphism in stem females and successive parthenogenetic generations in Brachionus calyciflorus Pallas
We have described the polymorphism in the hatchlings of resting eggs and the morphological variations between the stem females hatched from resting eggs and their successive parthenogenetic… Expand

Understanding the effects of watershed land uses (e.g., agriculture, urban industry) on stream ecological conditions is important for the management of large river basins. A total of 41 and 56 stream… Expand
Effects of acute cold exposure on oxidative balance and total antioxidant capacity in juvenile Chinese soft-shelled turtle, Pelodiscus sinensis.
Acute cold exposure may disturb the physiological homeostasis of the body in ectotherms. To date, there has been no information on the effects of cold exposure on homeostasis of reactive oxygen… Expand
Growth, population age structure and mortality of the limpet Collisella heroldi (DUNKER, 1861) (Gastropoda : Acmaeidae) in an intertidal rocky shore, in southern Hokkaido
The growth rate, population age structure, and mortality of the limpet Collisella heroldi in the intertidal area of Usujiri, Hokkaido were studied. Annual ring method and size distribution were used… Expand
