The brown shrimp Crangon crangon is an opportunistic feeder that is widely distributed in the Atlantic Ocean. It has a large pray spectrum and uses ambush tactics while hunting. To explore the possibility of memory and ...
Homing behavior and locality preferences in patellid and trochid gastropods
In the present study we examined the homing behavior, distribution and locality-preferences of two groups of Gastropods, Patellidae and Trochidae, in the Eulittoral of the rocky shore at Le Cabellou, Brittany/France. By ...
Der Einfluss von Seepockenbefall auf die Agilität von Littorina littorea
In the Wadden sea of Sylt Littorina littorea constitutes a wide spreaded species of snails. Since L. littorea possesses no defence mechanisms against settling by epibionts such as chemical barricades, the periwinkles are ...
Das Vorkommen von Semibalanus balanoides im Kosterfjord ist unabhängig von der Wellenenergie, aber beeinflusst durch die geografische Ausrichtung
During a survey in September 2010 in Tjärnö, Sweden, we examined differences in the occurrence of the barnacle Semibalanus balanoides at rocky shores. We sought to proof whether there were differences in the density of S. ...
Reconstruction of shell patterns using deterministic continuous mathematical models
Two deterministic reaction-diffusion models are introduced to simulate a general molecular mechanism, which can produce a variety of different pigmentation patterns on the shells of molluscs. We focused on the reconstruction ...
Public preferences for pasture landscapes and the role of scale heterogeneity
Despite its relevance for agricultural production, biodiversity and landscape aesthetics, grazing livestock is rarely considered in research on public landscape preferences. This paper studies public preferences for pasture ...
