The few studies of Antarctic marine invertebrates that have previously examined seasonal changes in physiology have concentrated on species that cease feeding for extended periods in the austral winter. In contrast, the limpet Nacella concinna (Strebel, 1908) feeds throughout the year. To compare the differing physiological responses demonstrated by a continually feeding species and species that cease feeding during winter we measured seasonal changes in N. concinna faecal egestion, oxygen… CONTINUE READING
