Sebastian Weber, Walter Traunspurger, Invasive red swamp crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) and native noble crayfish (Astacus astacus) similarly reduce oligochaetes, epipelic algae, and meiofauna biomass: a microcosm study, Freshwater Science, /, 36, 1, (), (). Humans are rapidly altering thermal landscapes, so a central challenge to organismal ecologists is to better understand the thermal niches of ectotherms. However, there is much disagreement over how we should go about this. Some ecologists assume that a statistical model of abundance as a function of habitat temperature provides a sufficient approximation of the thermal niche, but.   The thermal history of an organism can affect the metabolic response to changes in temperature. The metabolic rates for P. clarkii and P. zonangulus acclimated to high or low temperatures were temperature dependent over the range of normal environmental temperatures experienced by these crayfish. small leg-like structures under the tail of the crayfish. uropods. last pair of apendages that are flat structures which help the cray fish swim rapidly backwards. esophagus. the passage between the pharynx and the stomach. rostrum. beaklike projection of the anterior part of the head of certain insects such as e.g. weevils.

The fastest rates of mercury bioaccumulation were found in brown bullhead, smallmouth bass, signal crayfish, and yellow perch as indicated by the slopes of their log-transformed mercury concentration-age regression lines. The slopes for cutthroat trout, kokanee, and pumpkinseed suggested very slow uptake in these species. diurnal fwo'luations in metabolic rates in th. e crayfish, astacus trowbridgi stimpson b. y. jack. foster. a thesi. s submitted. to oregon. state.
