Neuromuscular synaptic transmission in the ectothermal crab Carcinus maenas was used to assess the extent to which photoperiod affected the attainment of temperature acclimation and had a marked effect on acclimated to temperature as measured by muscle resting potential and excitatory junction potential amplitude and facilitation.
Temperature Influences Whole‐Animal Rates of Metabolism but Not Protein Synthesis in a Temperate Intertidal Isopod
The temperature independence of whole‐body ks in L. oceanica could ensure survival in a highly liable thermal environment, as thermal tolerances of intertidal invertebrates are thought to be more closely related to protein than to energy metabolism.

Thermal behaviour of crustaceans
In crustaceans the peripheral nervous system seems to have retained the capacity for thermosensitivity and thermal acclimation independently of the central nervous system control of behaviour.
Thermal behaviour of edible crab Cancer pagurus Linnaeus, 1758 in coastal Norway
The thermal preference and lower critical temperature in female edible crab Cancer pagurus, a decapod crustacean with an ongoing northward dispersal along the Norwegian coast, is investigated to provide important information about the functional characteristics of edible crab.


Critical Thermal Maxima in Salamanders
This method allows a quantitative determination of thermal tolerance by measuring the area of the polygon, the units being in square degrees, and the ultimate upper and lower incipient lethal temperatures can be determined by this method.
