Seasonal dormancy is a widespread mechanism for reducing energy expenditure during periods of low energy availability. Seasonal variation in activity and the cost of pumping water through the siphons were investigated to estimate the importance of activity regulation to the seasonal energy budget of the Antarctic clam, Laternula elliptica. In the laboratory, a metabolic rate of 26.35 μmol O2 h−1 was estimated for a 50-mm shell length L. elliptica pumping water at −0.4 °C. In the field, the… CONTINUE READING
