Thinning of the digestive epithelium of marine molluscs may provide an index of environmental stress. Variability in epithelial thickness, as a consequence of the large variety of environmental and populational variables which could affect MET (Mean Epithelial Thickness), may counter the value of the index. Variation in MET of the intertidal gastropodLittorina littorea (L.) has been studied under experimental tidal conditions and, based on published data, under natural tidal conditions in the… CONTINUE READING
