Metabolic cold adaptation in the lugworm Arenicola marina: comparison of a North Sea and a White Sea population

Abstract

Mitochondrial mechanisms, which may define and adjust an organism’s thermal tolerance window to the environmental temperature regime, were studied in 2 intertidal populations of the polychaete worm Arenicola marina (L.) from the North Sea (boreal) and the White Sea (subpolar). Adaptation to lower mean annual temperatures in the subpolar White Sea population… (More)
