Effect of mercury on survival, metabolism and behaviour of larval Uca pugilator (Brachyura)
A battery of tests was used to determine the effects of three dilute mercuric chloride solutions on larval stages (Zoea I, III, V) of the fiddler crab Uca pugilator (Bosc). The influence of both… Expand
Studies on the physiological variation between tropical and temperate zone fiddler crabs of the genus Uca--V. Effect of temperature on tissue respiration.
Abstract 1. 1. The metabolic-temperature curves for the supraoesophageal ganglion (SEG), the heart and muscle tissue from three species of fiddler crabs have been determined. Two of the species, Uca… Expand
Temperature–Salinity Stress and Mercury Uptake in the Fiddler Crab, Uca pugilator
Uptake of 203Hg was determined in gill and hepatopancreas tissue from fiddler crabs (Uca pugilator) maintained under six temperature–salinity regimes. Although the total mercury was relatively… Expand
Reliability of Laboratory Metabolic Measurements of Meiofauna
The interstitial copepod Hastigerella leptoderma respires significantly less when sand grains are present than when sand grains are absent and the mud-dwelling species Nannopus palustris requires… Expand
UTILIZATION OF CERTAIN SUBSTRATES BY LARVAL AND ADULT STAGES OF HIMASTHLA QUISSETENSIS.
Abstract Proline and glutamic acid increased the respiration rate of rediae of H. quissetensis, but glucose, fucose, mannose, and ribose were without effect. Succinate also caused increased oxygen… Expand
Studies on oxygen consumption in digenetic trematodes. IV. Oxidative pathways in the trematode Gynaecotyla adunca (Linton, 1905).
Abstract 1. 1. Succinate, malate, and oxaloacetate stimulated respiration in adult G. adunca. The amount of stimulation increased as the worms aged. Citrate, isocitrate and pyruvate were without… Expand
