Tubificoides benedii (Tubificidae, Oligochaeta) — a pioneer in hypoxic and sulfidic environments. An overview of adaptive pathways

The present work in relation to earlier physiological and structural studies suggests adaptive strategies that make T. benedii one of the most successful inhabitants of ecologically stressed, sulfidic benthic environments.


Renal reabsorption rates of these ions were threefold greater than branchial influx rates, confirming increased transporting capability and possible mechanisms of renal postfiltrational electrolyte and acidic equivalent processing are discussed.

The behavioural responses and tolerance of freshwater benthic cyclopoid copepods to hypoxia and anoxia

The results suggest that some benthic copepods cope with seasonal anoxia in eutrophic stratified lakes by migration rather than the various physiological adaptations shown by planktonic and semi-planktonic species.

The Macrostomum lignano EST database as a molecular resource for studying platyhelminth development and phylogeny

A protocol for combined immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization labeling in juvenile Macrostomum, employing homologs of lin11/lim1 and six3/optix is demonstrated, and Expression of these genes is shown in the context of the neuropile/muscle system.

The Alkaloid Ageladine A, Originally Isolated from Marine Sponges, Used for pH-Sensitive Imaging of Transparent Marine Animals

The brominated pyrrole-imidazole Ageladine A was used for live imaging of the jellyfish Nausithoe werneri, the sea anemone Metridium senile and the flatworm Macrostomum lignano to estimate pH values in tissue and organs in living animals.

On the Rate of Oxygen Consumption by Tissues and Lower Organisms as a Function of Oxygen Tension

    The Quarterly Review of Biology
  • 1933
In view of the theoretical equations developed in recent years attempting to describe the rate of 02consumption as a function of 02 tension, it was deemed desirable that a quantitative summary and interpretations of the more recent work on the subject be made.

Animal response to drastic changes in oxygen availability and physiological oxidative stress.

Oxygen and the Spatial Structure of Microbial Communities

  • 2008
It is shown that the ambiguous relation to oxygen is both an evolutionary force and a dominating factor driving functional interactions and the spatial structure of microbial communities, particularly in microbial communities that are specialised for life in concentration gradients of oxygen.

Cerebral anoxia tolerance in turtles: regulation of intracellular calcium and pH.

  • P. Bickler
  • Biology
    The American journal of physiology
  • 1992
Tolerance of cerebral anoxia in turtles may be related to anaerobic ATP production, arrest of calcium channels, and attenuation of changes in pHi.
