The degree that UV-B absorbing compounds provide UV-R protection in embryos and larvae of the sea urchin Sterechinus neumayeri: A comparison with adults
Entry ID: K068_2002_2003_NZ_1

Abstract: The degree that UV-B absorbing compounds provide UV-R protection was examined in four early developmental stages of the sea urchine Sterechinus neumayeri from Cape Armitage, McMurdo Sound. Adult Sterechinus were collected over their bathymetric range of distribution and the concentration of UV absorbing compounds, mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs), in the gonadal tissues was quantified.
