Osmoregulation and salinity tolerance in two species of bivalve mollusc: Limnoperna fortunei and Mytilopsis leucophaeta
This paper reports on salinity tolerance and osmotic regulation in two bivalve molluscs: Mytilopsis leucophaeta Conrad, an oligohaline species (subclass Heterodonta) and Limnoperna fortunei Dunker, aExpand

The salivary gland and salivary enzymes of the giant waterbugs (Heteroptera; Belostomatidae).
The giant waterbugs are predators that utilize extra-oral digestion and are known to capture a wide variety of prey. Herein we describe the differences in salivary enzyme composition between largeExpand

There is no horohalinicum
Species abundance declines to a minimum (the Artenminimum) between 5 and 8‰, not only in estuaries, but in all bodies of brackish water. Khlebovich (1968) examined published hydrochemical data forExpand

Hypoosmotic volume regulation in the sea anemone Metridium senile
Abstract 1. The anemone Metridium senile survives salinities from seawater (950 mOsm) to 55% SW (520 mOsm) for at least two weeks. Animals exposed to 40% SW (380 mOsm) die within three days. 2. TheExpand

Osmotic regulation and salinity tolerance in the freshwater snail Pomacea bridgesi and the freshwater clam Lampsilis teres
Abstract Unionid clams ( Lampsilis teres) and apple snails ( Pomacea bridgesi ) were gradually acclimated to media ranging in osmotic concentration from fresh water to 400 mOsm. There was noExpand

Osmoregulation and epithelial permeability in two euryhaline bivalve molluscs: Mya arenaria and Geukensia demissa
Abstract Mya arenaria (subclass Heterodonta) survives for at least 5 wk in media of 100–1000 mOsm; Geukensia demissa (subclass Pteriomorphia) survives in media of 50–1000 mOsm. Tissue hydration doesExpand
