Seasonality of the endogenous activity rhythm in Talitrus saltator (Montagu) from a sandy beach in northeastern Tunisia
Abstract The endogenous activity of the sandhopper Talitrus saltator (Montagu) has been investigated in a population from a relatively exposed beach in northeast Tunisia. The animals were found toExpand

The effect of tidal cycles of hydrostatic pressure on the activity of Lipophrys pholis (L.) (Teleostei)
Abstract When exposed to pressure cycles of tidal frequency, arhythmic Lipophrys pholis were generally most active during the increasing pressure phase. Pressure cycles entrained a rhythm in ≈1/5 ofExpand

The persistence and modulation of endogenous circatidal rhythmicity in Lipophrys pholis (Teleostei)
In constant conditions, freshly-collected Lipophrys pholis show an endogenous circatidal activity rhythm, the initial activity peaks of which are phased to the expected time of high tide. The rhythmExpand
