Larval diet alters larval growth rates and post-metamorphic performance in the marine gastropod Crepidula fornicata.Pechenik, Jan A.

Some larval experiences can produce "latent effects" on post-metamorphic growth or survival. While it is known that periods of starvation during larval development can cause such latent effects, the effect of larval diet on post-metamorphic growth has not been studied. As global climate change and ocean acidification are expected to decrease phytoplankton concentrations and alter both phytoplankto... read more
