The energy cost for various ciliary filter feeders shows that useful pump work constitutes 0.3–1.1% of the total metabolic expenditure. The ‘water processing potential’ (liters of water pumped per milliliter O2 consumed by the animal) is a useful tool for characterizing filter feeding and adaptation to the environment. The six types of ciliarycapture mechanisms (collar sieving, cirral trapping, ciliary sieving, ciliary downstream collecting, ciliary upstream collecting, mucus-net sieving) are… CONTINUE READING
