Abstract

The fluorochrome calcein has been used in numerous growth studies of molluscs to internally mark calcified structures. Because of interspecific variations in marking success and possible effects on growth performance, methodological assessments of the suitability of calcein as a growth marker, especially in field contexts, remain necessary. Here we report on the effects of different calcein concentrations (100, 200, 400 and 800mg l
