Published: 15 December 2016
...David Taylor ABSTRACT Experiments and observations were carried out to investigate the response of the Patella vulgata limpet shell to impact . Dropped-weight impact tests created damage that usually took the form of a hole in the shell's apex. Similar damage was found to occur naturally...

...Yunwei Dong; George N. Somero SUMMARY We characterized functional and structural properties of cytoplasmic malate dehydrogenases (cMDHs) from six limpets of the genus Lottia that have different vertical and latitudinal distributions. Particular attention was given to the cryptic species pair Lottia...

... synthesis, degradation and growth rates in free-ranging Antarctic limpets ( Nacella concinna ), together with protein synthesis rates at temperatures ranging between –1.5°C and 6.0°C. PSRE were not significantly different in summer (15.69±4.41%) or winter(20.59±4.45%), but values were considerably lower...

... to predict the body temperature of intertidal organisms whose heat budgets are strongly affected by conduction to and from the substratum. Here, we propose a simple heat-budget model of one such animal,the limpet Lottia gigantea , and test the model against measurements made in the field. Working solely from...

...Mark W. Denny; Luke P. Miller; Christopher D. G. Harley SUMMARY When coupled with long-term meteorological records, a heat-budget model for the limpet, Lottia gigantea , provides a wealth of information regarding environmental and topographic controls of body temperature in this ecologically...

...Gary K. Ellem; John E. Furst; Kenneth D. Zimmerman SUMMARY The behaviour of clamping the shell against the substratum may play an important role in the limpet adhesion mechanism because friction generated by this behaviour resists dislodgement by shear forces. This paper describes the development...
