Abstract Der Film veranschaulicht, teilweise in Mikroaufnahmen, die Anatomie des Bohrmechanismus (einschließlich Radula und Zusatzbohrorgan) sowie die grundlegenden Phasen des Bohr-Fressverhaltens der räuberischen Stachelschnecke Urosalpinx cinerea (Austernbohrer). Die im Labor entstandenen Aufnahmen zeigen auch die Reaktion der Schnecken auf die Stoffwechselprodukte der Austern.
This motion picture illustrates, partly in magnification, the anatomy of the boring mechanism (including radula and accessory boring organ), and the representative phases of the boring-feeding behaviour of the predatory muricid gastropod Urosalpinx cinerea (Say, 1822) (American oyster drill). Including response of snails to oyster metabolites. Viewed in an oyster model immersed in seawater.
