Behavioral experiments were conducted on two bivalve species—the Japanese scallop Mizuhopecten yessoensis and the Swift scallop Chlamys swifti—to elucidate the role of their abdominal sense organ (ASO) in directional sensitivity to water-borne vibrations. The thresholds were determined at 140 Hz. Both species displayed the highest sensitivity to vibrations, the source of which was placed above the animal (opposite to the left valve), rostro-dorsally to its vertical axis. Removal of the ASO led… CONTINUE READING
