Eight mussels (4 mussels per trial with two replicates; n = 8) were attached to the vertical posts in the 4 feeding chambers using Velcro[TM] so that their exhalant siphons were oriented toward the camera lenses, with the inhalant siphon
facing into the flow of water and the exhalant siphon facing downstream to prevent any recirculated water from entering the inhalant siphon
ABSTRACT To study the process of regeneration and its effect on the morphology of the inhalant siphon of a tellineacean bivalve, Donax denticulatus, individuals were artificially amputated and placed in aquaria under laboratory conditions, in the absence of predators.
Pekkarinen (1984) also registered significant growth rates differences in individuals of Macoma balthica, a tellinacean bivalve, when inhalant siphon was removed.
Luzzatto and Penchaszadeh (2001) studied changes in regeneration rates of inhalant siphon of Donax hanleyanus, and showed that this process had a sigmoidal behavior.
