1. 1. Rhythmic activity has been observed from the polychaetes Clymenella torquata, C. zonalis and C. mucosa. No such activity was observed in Petaloproctus socialis or Branchioasychis americana. 2. 2. The difference in rhythmic activity can be correlated with the ecological niche. Clymenella populations live in anoxic sediments; P. socialis live in coarse sediments. B. americana has filamentous gills. 3. 3. The volume of sediment turned over by C. torquata kept at 26°C was 1 ml/day… CONTINUE READING
