Synergistic Effects of Salinity and Temperature on the Survival of Two Nonnative Bivalve Molluscs, Perna viridis (Linnaeus 1758) and Mytella charruana (d’Orbigny 1846)
Survivorship curves of Mytella charruana for temperature experiments. Shell lengths: 20–54 mm. Capital letters correspond to the experimental treatments presented in Table 1(a). (a) Cold experiment (temperatures: 6, 9, 11, and 13°C); (b) warm experiment (temperatures: 20, 31, and 36°C); and (c) warm experiment (temperatures: 20, 23, 28, and 31°C). Upper case letters indicate significant differences in survivorship () among temperature treatments. Dotted lines show the end of the 15-day temperature adjustment periods.
