A dynamic new alarm system for use in biological early warning systems
The study revealed that static threshold levels are insensitive and require a lot of experience and the dynamic alarm system works satisfactorily with the Musselmonitor and is very useful for the detection of discontinuities in the normal behavior. Expand
Swimming Behavioral Toxicity in JapaneseMedaka (Oryzias latipes) Exposed to Various Chemicals for Biological Monitoring ofWater Quality
We conducted a short-term behavioral toxicity test in medaka (Oryzias latipes). Fish were exposed to toxicants (potassium cyanide [1 or 5 mg/L], phenol [12.5 or 25 mg/L], fenitrothion [10 or 20Expand
A "toolbox" for biological and chemical monitoring requirements for the European Union's Water Framework Directive.
Emerging biological and chemical monitoring tools that may become part of a 'toolbox' of techniques for use by those in charge of assessing water quality are presented. Expand
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 normalExpand
Detecting the shellfish killer Heterocapsa circularisquama (Dinophyceae) by measuring bivalve valve activity with a Hall element sensor
Results indicate that this system using the Hall element sensor can detect low densities of H. circularisquama cells in real time without needing complicated apparatus. Expand
In situ on-line toxicity biomonitoring in water: recent developments.
Mobile on-line monitoring platforms containing an array of biomonitors, biosensors, and chemical monitoring equipment might be the future trend, especially in monitoring transboundary rivers at country borders as well as in coastal zones. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Heavy‐metal and microbial depuration of the clam Ruditapes decussatus and its effect on bivalve behavior and physiology
There was a significant correlation between reduction of metal concentration in clam tissue and enhancement of valve movement, as well as activity and increasing respiration rate, and it can be concluded that shellfish monitoring and depuration data depended on the initial concentration of the pollutants. Expand
Valve closure responses of the Asiatic clam Corbicula fluminea exposed to cadmium and zinc
Asiatic clams demonstrated a greater rate of response to progressively more concentrated solutions of cadmium than to comparable increases in the concentrations of zinc solutions, and lengthening durations of periods with valves sealed coincided with exposure of clams to progressivelyMore concentrated zinc solutions.
