Survival, haemolymph osmolality and the specific metabolic rate of the isopod Idotea chelipes from the brackish waters of the southern Baltic Sea (salinity 7 psu) were investigated after acclimation to different salinities in the range of 3-30 psu keeping other parameters constant (T=15 degrees C, full air saturation). Haemolymph osmolality of I. chelipes increased from 379+/-33 mmol kg(-1) at 3 psu to 935+/-12 mmol kg(-1) at 30 psu. In the salinity range of 3-11 psu I. chelipes exhibited a… CONTINUE READING
