Physiological energetics and biogeographic range limits of three congeneric mussel species

  title={Physiological energetics and biogeographic range limits of three congeneric mussel species},
  author={Elizabeth K. Fly and Thomas J. Hilbish},
Closely related species with different physiological tolerances and distributions make ideal systems for documenting range shifts in response to a changing climate. Mytilus edulis, M. trossulus, and M. galloprovincialis are sibling species of marine mussels with distinct biogeographical ranges that are correlated with sea surface temperatures. We determined the scope for growth of these three species at a range of temperatures to determine if energetics could predict their distributions. Scope… CONTINUE READING
