The heart rate, oxygen consumption, survivorship, and 1-lactate
accumulation were determined in the intertidal limpets Collisella pelta
and Collisella digitalis in relation to laboratory desiccation at 15°C
or 30°C. Water loss was computed as a percentage of total initial body
water (wet weight - dry weight). Although water was lost...
A 15-month field study was made on the reproductive cycles of
the prosobranch gastropods Nucella lamellosa, Nucella emarginata,
Searlesia dira and Amphissa columbiana on the Oregon coast.
Amphissa columbiaria and Searlesia dira were collected from Boiler
Bay, Nucella emarginata from Seal Rock and Nucella lamellosa
from inside Yaquina Bay.
The histopathological and histochemical effects on the snail
Oxytrema siliqua, caused by the larvae of Nanophyetus salmincola,
have been studied. The parasite causes damage to the organ by increased
pressure, active ingestion of the hepatic tubules, and by
the increased burden placed upon the snail in disposing of the waste...
Numbers of carabid beetles, caterpillars, cranefly larvae and slugs collected from pitfall and refuge traps in ten Annual Ryegrass fields in Linn County, Oregon between March 23, 2018 and June 20, 2019. Given are details on sampling date, trap, size and sex (carabids only), weight (slugs only) and species (where...
This study¹ was undertaken: (1) to obtain information on the distribution of the snail, Oxytrema silicula, in three coastal rivers in Oregon, and the seasonal incidence of infection in these snails and in snails from an inland stream, with the cercariae of the trematode, Nanophyetus salinincola; (2) to follow cercarial...
