Assessing the effect of salinity on barnacle adhesion and biomineralization
(National Shellfisheries Association, 2015)
Barnacles are dominant members of marine biofouling communities throughout much of the world’s oceans. The base of the barnacle attaches to surfaces with secreted proteinaceous adhesives that bond with surfaces and cure. ...
Determining the Impacts of Salinity on the Biochemical and Mechanical Properties of Barnacles
We attempted to determine how varying salinity can impact the barnacle. We worked under the hypothesis that barnacles developed in higher and lower salinities than ambient conditions would display significantly lower shell ...
