Cockle Temperature Exposure Lab Experiment (2016)

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

We carried out a lab experiment in which we exposed cockles to a range of air temperatures to simulate the physiological rigors of exposure to sunlight and air at the sediment surface during daytime low tides. Cockles were subjected to twelve different temperature (6, 14, 21, 30, 34, 38 ± 1.0 °C) x time (2, 4 hrs) treatments within temperature-controlled chambers, representing the temperature and exposure durations regularly observed on Yaquina Bay mid-intertidal flats during daytime low tides in the summer. This dataset contains all data collected during that lab experiment.

This dataset is associated with the following publication: Lewis, N., and T. DeWitt. Effect of Green Macroalgal Blooms on the Behavior, Growth, and Survival of Cockles (Clinocardium nuttallii) in Pacific NW Estuaries. MARINE ECOLOGY PROGRESS SERIES. Inter-Research, Luhe, GERMANY, 582: 105-120, (2017).
