In molluscs, the shell secreted by mantle tissue during the biomineralization process is the first barrier against predators and mechanical damage. Changing environmental conditions, such as ocean acidification, influence shell strength and thus protection of the...

Ocean acidification, the ongoing decline of surface ocean pH and [CO ${}_{3}^{2-}$ 3 2 − ] due to absorption of surplus atmospheric CO2, has far-reaching consequences for marine biota, especially calcifiers. Among these are teleost fishes, which internally calcify...

Bighead carps (Aristichthys nobilis) were divided into four groups with different feeding strategies: group A, nature live food only (fertiliser only, 200 g urea + 160 g ethylamine phosphate + 250 g Huangjintai bio-fertiliser); group B, nature live food + 1/2 formulated...

The Bertalanffy–Pütter growth model describes mass m at age t by means of the differential equation dm/dt = p * ma − q * mb. The special case using the von Bertalanffy exponent-pair a = 2/3 and b = 1 is most common (it corresponds to the von Bertalanffy growth...
