On measurement of filtration rates in bivalves — the stony road to reliable data: review and interpretation
TLDR
This review deals with the measurement of filtration rates in suspension feeding bivalves, and some reliable filTration rate data obtained under optimal laboratory conditions are presented. Expand
Filtration rate capacities in 6 species of European freshwater bivalves
TLDR
The measured filtration rates in undisturbed bivalves are substantially higher (at least 4 times) than previously reported, indicating that the impact of bivalve water processing on freshwater ecosystems is greater than hitherto suggested. Expand
SUSPENSION-FEEDING IN MARINE SPONGES HALICHONDRIA-PANICEA AND HALICLONA-URCEOLUS - EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE ON FILTRATION-RATE AND ENERGY-COST OF PUMPING
Filtration rate (measured as clearance of algal cells) was measured at different temperatures in the sponge Halichondna panicea. An increase in water temperature from 6 to 12 "C caused the meanExpand
Regulation of opening state and filtration rate in filter-feeding bivalves (Cardium edule, Mytilus edulis, Mya arenaria) in response to low algal concentration
TLDR
The demonstrated regulation of the opening state and filtration activity in response to the presence and absence of algal cells may represent a physiological adaptation to presumably frequent situations with transiently meagre phytoplankton suspensions in the near-bottom water. Expand
Growth, filtration and respiration in the mussel Mytilus edulis:no evidence for physiological regulation of the filter-pump to nutritional needs
TLDR
The results show that there is no physiological regulation of the filtration rate to nutritional needs, and that food uptake in nature is characterized by the full exploitation of the capacity of the bivalve filter-pump. Expand
Growth and energetics of the sponge Halichondria panicea
TLDR
It was found that sponges apparently have a higher energy demand for growth than other invertebrates, but compensate for this by a high retention efficiency for small particles z0.1 pm. Expand
Filtration capacity of the ascidian Ciona intestinalis and its grazing impact in a shallow fjord
TLDR
The results suggest that the population of C, intestinalis in Kertinge Nor may have an important grazing impact on the phytoplankton in late summer-early fall. Expand
In situ feeding rates of plantonic copepods: A comparison of four methods
TLDR
During a spring phytoplankton bloom in the Kattegat and Skagerrak area (Denmark) comparisons were made of the natural feeding rates obtained by four different methods of seven species of planktonic copepods, and it is concluded that they all approach representative (although minimum) estimates of in situ feeding rates. Expand
Particle capture mechanisms in suspension-feeding invertebrates
TLDR
The current physical and biological understanding of the capture process is discussed and a number of specific problems related to particle capture are suggested, which may be solved in the future using advanced theoretical, computational and experimental techniques. Expand
Feeding, growth and respiration in the polychaetes Nereis diversicolor (facultative filter-feeder) and N. virens (omnivorous)-a comparative study
The polychaetes Nereis divers~color and N. virens were fed various amounts of shrimp meat in laboratory experiments and h e a r relationships between specific growth rate and specific respirationExpand
