Heart Rate in the Blue Mussel Mytilus edulis (Bivalvia) under Salinity Change

Heart Rate in the Blue Mussel Mytilus edulis (Bivalvia) under Salinity Change The heart rate (HR) was studied applying noninvasive monitoring in the blue mussel Mytilus edulis L. from the White Sea. It was shown that the sublittoral mussels had a higher cardiac activity than the littoral mussels. Mollusks responded to a drop in salinity from 25 to 15‰ with a decrease in HR, which was more pronounced in sublittoral individuals. Acclimated mollusks sharply increased their HR upon being returned to the initial salinity (deacclimation). The cardiac activity normalized completely within two days after the beginning of the deacclimation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

The heart rate (HR) was studied applying noninvasive monitoring in the blue mussel Mytilus edulis L. from the White Sea. It was shown that the sublittoral mussels had a higher cardiac activity than the littoral mussels. Mollusks responded to a drop in salinity from 25 to 15‰ with a decrease in HR, which was more pronounced in sublittoral individuals. Acclimated mollusks sharply increased their HR upon being returned to the initial salinity (deacclimation). The cardiac activity normalized completely within two days after the beginning of the deacclimation.
