The aim of this research is study the effects of hydration/ dehydration cycles on the hatching percentage, survival and growth of Artemia parthenogenetica cysts. Experiments were carried out in three treatments from one to three hydration/ dehydration cycles. Then cysts hatching percentage of each treatment was determined in 3 replicates according to the standard method. Survival and growth were measured on days 8, 11, 15, 20, and 25 of growth. The results indicated that two hydration/ dehydration cycles nearly increases hatching percentage and survival of Artemia parthenogenetica cysts (86.38%) comparing to control group (85.79%). Excess hydration/dehydration cycles cause a reduction in survival percentage. Therefore the survival percentage in three hydration/dehydration cycles is significantly lower than other treatments. But growth of Artemia parthenogenetica is not significantly affected by cyclic hydration/dehydration. To sum up, in Artemia parthenogenetica, against other species of Artemia, hydration/dehydration cycles are not essential, and performing it decreases cyst hatching percentage. Keywords: Artemia parthenogenetica, Hatching, Cyst, Hydration/ Dehydration. ...

Pulsed flow-through cultivation of Margaritifera margaritifera : effects of water source and food quantity on the survival and growth of juveniles Hyvärinen, Heini S. H.; Chowdhury, M. Motiur R.; Taskinen, Jouni (Springer, 2020)Conservation of the endangered freshwater pearl mussel (FPM) includes artificially rearing juveniles, but the pulsed flow-through (PFT) method, enabling the continuous renewal of water and food in culture containers, has ...
Pisano, Olivia M.; Kuparinen, Anna; Hutchings, Jeffrey A. (Pergamon Press, 2019)Directional changes in temperature have well-documented effects on ectotherms, yet few studies have explored how increased thermal variability (a concomitant of climate change) might affect individual fitness.

Simulated eutrophication and browning alters zooplankton nutritional quality and determines juvenile fish growth and survival Taipale, Sami; Kahilainen, Kimmo Kalevi; Holtgrieve, Gordon William; Peltomaa, Elina Talvikki (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2018)The first few months of life is the most vulnerable period for fish and their optimal hatching time with zooplankton prey is favored by natural selection. Traditionally, however, prey abundance (i.e., zooplankton density) ...
Vascular endothelial growth factor-A and platelet-derived growth factor-B combination gene therapy prolongs angiogenic effects via recruitment of interstitial mononuclear cells and paracrine effects rather than improved pericyte coverage of angiogenic vessels Korpisalo, P; Karvinen, H; Rissanen, T T; Kilpijoki, J; Marjomäki, Varpu; Baluk, P; McDonald, D M; Cao, Y; Eriksson, U; Alitalo, K; Ylä-Herttuala, S (2008)Vessel stabilization and the inhibition of side effects such as tissue edema are essential in angiogenic gene therapy. Thus, combination gene transfers stimulating both endothelial cell and pericyte proliferation have ...
