Reproduction-temperature nexus influencing spawning of pectinids in tropical and temperate waters
This paper aims to summarize the current state of knowledge on key environmental factors in the marine environment influencing reproduction in Pectinidae. Sixteen most relevant published studies wereExpand
Lunar Periodicity in Reproduction of Senatorial Scallop (Chlamys Senatoria Gmelin, 1791) in Asid Gulf, Masbate, Philippines

TLDR
Findings indicate that reproduction and necessarily spawning in the scallop are related to factors associated with lunar phases, and strategies for managing the resource can be formulated using the temporal dimension of lunar phases. Expand
Chronic and severe hypoxic conditions in Paracas Bay, Pisco, Peru: Consequences on scallop growth, reproduction, and survival
TLDR
The results indicate that environmental conditions in the Bay are highly variable, especially during the summer: temperature fluctuations up to 8 ∘ C were recorded in less than one day while oxic conditions ranged from oversaturation to anoxia, and increased stratification and upwelling favorable winds during theSummer might be partly responsible for the observed environmental variability. Expand
Don’t Blame It on the Moonlight: Abiotic Drivers of Reproductive Development in an Estuarine-Dependent Prawn
TLDR
It was found that turbidity, salinity, water temperature and lunar phase each had a significant independent influence on the likelihood of female prawns being ripe throughout the spawning period, indicating that salinity and turbidity have variable effects among the different lunar phases. Expand
Bioenergetics of the Peruvian scallops (Argopecten purpuratus) in an environmental context limiting oxygen
TLDR
It is hypothesized that there exist a restriction in the energy flow available for metabolism at oxygen saturations below the regulation capacity of the organism, and model simulations including this energy restriction against hypoxia can reproduce successfully field observations of Paracas Bay. Expand
Overview of the biology of Flexopecten glaber in the North Western Adriatic Sea (Italy): A good candidate for future shellfish farming aims?
TLDR
Observation and quantification of abnormal features of gonadic tissues, like oocyte atresia, haemocytic infiltration, neoplasia, and presence of parasites suggest the overall good health conditions of scallops in the study area, no serious threat due to diseases being evident. Expand
Scallop Structure and Function
Abstract Anatomy being a foundation for all higher study of organism-level and even population/ecology-level biology, this dimension of scallop biology is presented as comprehensively and conciselyExpand
Chapter 3 Structure and function in scallops
TLDR
This chapter emphasizes on the results of recent studies of scallop structure and function, which show the Pectinidae and other monomyarians are characterized by several important modifications of the more primitive isomyarian body form. Expand
Chapter 6 Reproductive Physiology
TLDR
Gametogenic cycles in scallops include periods of inactivity, cytoplasmic growth, vitellogenesis, spawning, and resorption of unspawned gametes, and regulation of gametogenesis is regulated internally by neurosecretions and age and externally by environmental factors, which synchronise the cycle. Expand
Reproductive characteristics of a primitive bivalve from a deep-sea reducing environment: giant gametes and their significance in Acharax alinae (Cryptodonta: Solemyidae)
TLDR
The presence of female gametes in all stages of development suggests that spawning is continuous or at least repeatedly partial in this species, and suggests that spermatozoon morphology in bivalve taxonomy is most useful in groups with homogeneous developmental strategies. Expand

AN ANALYSIS OF THE SPAWNING HABITS AND SPAWNING STIMULI OF CUMINGIA TELLINOIDES
TLDR
It is shown that temperature is not the only factor which determines the duration of the spawning season and periods of spawning and that sexually mature individuals spawn promptly when brought to the laboratory, after being placed in a bowl of quiet sea water. Expand
THE NATURAL HISTORY OF CUMINGIA TELLINOIDES
TLDR
The egg of Cumingia is subject to polyspermy and abnormal development often occurs if too heavily inseminated, and greater quantities of gametes are produced during the second year. Expand
CONCERNING THE INFLUENCE OF POLARIZED LIGHT ON THE GROWTH OF SEEDLINGS

TLDR
It is interesting to note that the phenomenon above observed did not take place when the seed portion of the plants was protected from light by wrapping with tinfoil, which agrees well with previous findings concerning the action of diastase on starch in polarized light. Expand
