The primary purpose of these studies was to determine whether photoperiodic signals could influence seasonal egg-laying behavior in the marine mollusk, Aplysia californica. Egg-laying behavior was monitored from groups of animals that were collected at four times of year and maintained in different temperature and photoperiodic conditions in the laboratory. Animals that were obtained in autumn and kept in warm water laid eggs more frequently than those in cold water, regardless of photoperiod… CONTINUE READING
