Rapid responses to stress in Eurytemora affinis

  title={Rapid responses to stress in Eurytemora affinis},
  author={Brian Patrick Bradley and Roxana Hakimzadeh and James S. Vincent},
E. affinis can adjust to temperature stress in a matter of hours. Adaptation is greater in a varying temperature than in a constant temperature, consistent with the estuarine habitat of this calanoid. The species has the capacity to adjust both in the short-term as individuals and also genetically over a number of generations. The adjustments have been examined at several levels of organization. In whole copepods the time an individual becomes comatose when exposed to a 32 °C temperature and… CONTINUE READING
