Behavior of Marine Animals: Current Perspectives in Research by William F. Herrnkind (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla

By William F. Herrnkind (auth.), Howard E. Winn, Bori L. Olla (eds.)

What were introduced jointly in those volumes are works symbolize­ ing a number of smooth quantitative experiences on a opt for team of marine organisms. the various species studied right here symbolize simple organic ex­ perimental subjects-in a few circumstances, marine types of the white rat and pigeon-that are getting used for a variety of reports. different species studied have been nearly unknown as experimental animals. The authors have studied their animals in significant intensity, frequently in either the sector and the laboratory. it really is this pass reference among genuine lifestyles and the synthetic yet managed stipulations of the laboratory which provides us the mandatory realizing, and eventually the skill, for bettering our quickly deteriorating setting, a needs to for man's survival, upkeep, and development of the standard of dwelling criteria. an instantaneous outgrowth of a AAAS symposium entitled "Recent Advances within the habit of Marine Organisms" held in December 1966, those vol­ umes comprise a cheap stability among evaluation and unique unpublished examine. Of the numerous folks who've made those volumes attainable, we want to specially thank Nancy Fish, Lois Winn, Mabel Trafford, and Deborah Brennan. The latter entire many of the ultimate editorial paintings. The team of workers of Plenum Press have been cooperative in all elements of our rela­ tionship. in basic terms the 2 editors are answerable for defects within the volumes. We think the papers awarded are major and may be of significance to participants of the medical community.

Orientation in Shore-Living Arthropods 33 group oriented landward for 5 min, then moved to the screen, 180 away, for the remainder of the test (Fig. II d). Most adults in the same test situation orient strongly landward, although this preference can be modified or reversed by desiccation (Herrnkind, 1968b). 0 4. Discussion The orientational behavior of U. pugilator undergoes a progressive transition between the first crab stage and the approximate time of sexual maturity.

Wolf spiders and fiddler crabs develop orientational preferences after experience in the environment. A strong, genetically fixed, directional tendency could be maladaptive in these latter forms, since the parent may change preferred Orientation in Shore-Living Arthropods 43 bearings during its lifetime or the offspring may develop in completely different areas. In all these groups, however, the young orient differently than older, experienced individuals and adults. All show relatively strong photoand telotactic responses which, in Aretosa and Uea, dominate other types of orientation until later stages.

Finally, the directional preference exhibited at any time is labile and wanes in crabs held indoors, or in barren containers, after 1-4 days (Altevogt and von Hagen, 1964; Herrnkind, I 968a). From this, one would expect hibernating crabs (in temperate areas) and those forced to stay underground during extensive storms to lose their directional preference and have to reestablish it upon emergence. Experimental results demonstrate that a particular bearing can be induced in simulated habitats consisting of a shore and shallow water provided with a guidance cue, such as overhead polarized light.
