Understanding the Effects of Low Salinity on Fertilization Success and Early Development in the Sand Dollar Echinarachnius parma.Pechenik, Jan A.
Allen, Jonathan D.
Free-spawning marine invertebrates that live near shore or in estuaries may experience reduced fertilization success during low-salinity events. Although several studies have documented reproductive failure at reduced salinity in estuarine animals, few have looked at whether developmental failure is due to a failure of fertilization or to a failure of fertilized eggs to cleave. In this study, we e... read more
