Krill Responses to Variations in Environmental Temperature (KREVET)
Entry ID: 1039_0_IPEV_FR

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Krill, which represent the most important oceanic biomass, is an essential component of the Antarctic food web. The Antarctic krill (such as Euphausia superba) is strictly stenothermal (Saborowski and Bucholz, 1999; Bucholz and Saborowski, 2000) and thus especially susceptible to any thermal change such as the one predicted from the global earth warming. Almost nothing is known about the thermal ... View entire text
ISO Topic Category
Quality Studies of physiological consequences of a possible temperature increase linked to the global warming
in Crustaceans from Antarctic ocean.
-Biological material: Krill Euphausia superba and /or Euphausia
crystallorophias.
-Research projects : -In vivo study of the induction of stress molecules as a function of the temperature; -Chrarcterization of stress proteins in Antarctic medium : thermal shock proteins (Heat/Cold shock proteins, H/CSP), peptides from the CHH (Crustacean Hyperglycemic
Hormone) family...
