The valve movement pattern of the freshwater bivalve Corbicula japonica ( C. japonica ) following exposure to test chemicals was monitored. We conducted the exposure test with two heavy metal compounds, cadmium chloride (CdCl 2 ; 0, 0.1, 1, or 10 mg/L) and copper (II) chloride (CuCl 2 ; 0, 0.1, 1, or 10 mg/L) in a continuous flow system. After a pre–exposure period in a test chamber, which was filled with dechlorinated tap water for 1 h, the bivalves were exposed to the test chemicals for 3 h…

The Influence of Suspended Particles on the Acute Toxicity of 2-Chloro-4-Nitro-Aniline, Cadmium, and Pentachlorophenol on the Valve Movement Response of the Zebra Mussel (Dreissena polymorpha)
The behavior of the zebra mussels revealed that the detection of 2-chloro-4-nitro-aniline was not affected by the presence of suspended matter, and D. polymorpha was able to detect these substances when they were particle-associated at least as well or better as when they was dissolved in the water.
Valve movement response of the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis to metals (Cu, Hg, Cd and Zn) and phosphate industry effluents from Moroccan Atlantic coast
Valve activity was measured in the Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis in response to sublethal concentrations of four metals and two phosphate industry effluents and its usefulness for in situ monitoring of coastal pollution in Morocco is discussed.
Monitoring of surface water by ultrasensitive Daphnia toximeter
Speed, speed distribution, height, distance between organisms, number of Daphnia, and “fractal dimension” are evaluated to account for the appearance of toxic substances.
Estimation of potential and limits of bivalve closure response to detect contaminants: Application to cadmium
An original system by impedance valvometry, using light-weight impedance electrodes, to study free-ranging animals in low-stress conditions and a new analytical approach to describe valve closure behavior as a function of response time and concentration of contaminant are developed.

Bivalve filter feeding revisited
Recent developments concerning the nature of bivalve filter feeding are reviewed and interpretations of data are examined. No convincing evidence was found for: (1) a function of mucus in the normal
Heavy metals in freshly deposited sediments of the Gomati River (a tributary of the Ganga River): effects of human activities
Abstract The concentrations of various metals (Cr, Cu, Co, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn, and Cd) were determined in recently deposited surface sediments of the Gomati River in the Lucknow urban area. Markedly
Monitoring Behavioral Responses to the Heavy Metal Cadmium in the Marine Shrimp Hippolyte inermis Leach (Crustacea: Decapoda) with Video Imaging
The subacute toxicity of the heavy metal cadmium to Hippolyte inermis Leach was investigated using changes in the locomotory behavior (i.e., moving velocity and moving distance) as indicators.
