The crustacean gill is a multi-functional organ, and it is the site of a number of physiological processes, including ion transport, which is the basis for hemolymph osmoregulation; acid-base balance; and ammonia excretion. The gill is also the site by which many toxic metals are taken up by aquatic crustaceans, and thus it plays an important role in the(More)
Life originated in an aqueous environment, and extant aquatic species face special challenges due to the physics and chemistry of water. Such functions as feeding and digestion, waste excretion, ion and volume regulation, acid-base regulation, biome-chanics, gas exchange, responses to thermal changes, and reproduction are dictated by the constraints of(More)
