In a Rhine River bypass built at a water pollution control station, the growth and reproductive cycle of the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) were studied over a period of nearly 3 years. The experimental setup offered the possibility to manipulate the temperature of the continuously passing river water and to calculate influences of temperature and food on the growth of individually marked mussels. Shell growth rates were a function of algal density (measured as chlorophyll a). This… CONTINUE READING
