Adaptations to host infection and larval parasitism in Unionoida
Abstract Freshwater mussel larval parasitism of fish is unique among bivalves. The relationship is primarily phoretic rather than nutritive; only the smallest glochidia and the haustorial larva growExpand

Discontinuous Carbon Dioxide Release and Metabolic Depression in Dormant Land Snails
SUMMARY The respiration of dormant land snails (Otala lactea Muller) is characterized by periodic retention and release of CO2. Rates of oxygen uptake (VQ2) and CO2 release (VCo2) of individuals wereExpand

Buckets of muckets: A compact system for rearing juvenile freshwater mussels
Abstract A novel system was developed for the culture of juvenile freshwater mussels (Unionidae). The system can be replicated economically to provide statistical power for experimentalExpand

Upper thermal tolerances of early life stages of freshwater mussels
Abstract Freshwater mussels (order Unioniformes) fulfill an essential role in benthic aquatic communities, but also are among the most sensitive and rapidly declining faunal groups in North America.Expand

CROSS-RESISTANCE OF LARGEMOUTH BASS TO GLOCHIDIA OF UNIONID MUSSELS
We tested whether host fish that acquired resistance to glochidia of one mussel species were cross-resistant to glochidia of other species. Largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) were primed withExpand

Acute and chronic toxicity of technical-grade pesticides to glochidia and juveniles of freshwater mussels (Unionidae).
Chemical contaminants are among many potential factors involved in the decline of freshwater mussel populations in North America, and the effects of pesticides on early life stages of unionid musselsExpand

Differential exposure, duration, and sensitivity of unionoidean bivalve life stages to environmental contaminants
Abstract Freshwater mussels (superfamily Unionoidea) are in serious global decline and in urgent need of protection and conservation. The declines have been attributed to a wide array of humanExpand

Tracheal gases, respiratory gas exchange, body temperature and flight in some tropical cicadas
Fidicina mannifera Fab. (mass 3 g) can fly at a body temperature of 22°C but take-off is usually preceded by an endothermic warm-up that elevates Tth to 28 °C or higher. Warm-up is accompanied byExpand

Evaluation of influence of sediment on the sensitivity of a unionid mussel (Lampsilis siliquoidea) to ammonia in 28-day water exposures.
A draft update of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ambient water quality criteria (AWQC) for ammonia substantially lowers the ammonia AWQC, primarily due to the inclusion of toxicity data forExpand

THERMAL SENSITIVITY OF SWIMMING PERFORMANCE AND MUSCLE CONTRACTION IN NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN POPULATIONS OF TREE FROGS (HYLA CRUCIFER)
Summary The effects of temperature on sprint swimming ability and muscle contractile properties were examined in northern and southern populations of the holarctic tree frog, Hyla cruciferExpand
