... a valve of the surf clam, Spisula solidissima , collected live from the New Jersey shelf. Based on the saw-toothed pattern of δ 18 O variation in this clam, and on the fact that observed amplitudes of δ 18 O variation are only a fraction of those anticipated from measurements of ambient water salinity...

... mucocytes on the eulamellibranch abfrontal surface, and their extremely dense distribution in Spisula solidissima, argues strongly for the latter interpretation. The most probable new function of the mucocytes of the abfrontal surface in this gill type is the reduction of frictional resistance to water...
