Mortality and length of development of Balanus eburneus nauplii is modifled in laboratory culture by both temperature and concentration of unicellular algal food. At 20 and 25°C mean larval survival was 63.5 % and 66.0 %, respectively, at an algal concentration of 1 X 10' cells ml-l. When the algal concentration was doubled to 2 X 105 cells ml-' mean survival increased significantly to 92.5 and 96.5 % at 20 and 25 'C, respectively (p = 0.002 at both temperatures). At 30°C the difference in… CONTINUE READING
