Faced with environmental stress, the females of many marine invertebrate species can isolate their brood chambers from the external environment for prolonged periods. Although brood chambers have therefore typically been assumed to protect the brooded embryos, the effects of continued isolation on conditions within brood chambers have not been examined. In the present research, we investigated the... read more
