Filtration rate capacities in 6 species of European freshwater bivalves

  title={Filtration rate capacities in 6 species of European freshwater bivalves},
  author={Jakob Kryger and Hans Ulrik Riisg{\aa}rd},
Filtration rate capacities in undisturbed freshwater bivalves were determined by means of two different methods (indirect “clearance” and “suction” methods) in Anodonta anatina (L.), Unio tumidus Philipsson, Unio pictorum (L.), Unio crassus Philipsson, Dreissena polymorpha (Pallas) and Sphaerium corneum (L.). In A. anatina, D. polymorpha, and S. corneum the filtration rate (FR, 1 h-1) at 19–20°C as a function of dry tissue weight (DW, g) or ash-free dry weight (AFDW, g) could be expressed by… CONTINUE READING
