When these entered a lobster's ears and found their way into the statolith
, he could control them with a magnet and fool the lobster.
7 mm/day in the 18-48 cm ML range (Araya, 1983), and good agreement exists between growth rates obtained from tag-recapture studies and those from statolith
aging studies (Yatsu et al.
The influence of ration level on growth and statolith
increment width of the tropical squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana (Cephalopoda: Loliginidae): an experimental approach.
It is also possible that some environmental stimuli, such as storms, temperature shocks, or unsuccessful attacks by predators, provide sufficient stress to induce check formation within the statolith
microstructure (Arkhipkin 2005).
The procedure described by Schwarz and Perez (2010) was followed for statolith
preparation and reading.
Foot muscle was used for these analyses because whelk stomachs were empty (see below) and the foot tissue could be removed without compromising the areas of the whelk body needed for statolith
, radula, and gonad recovery (in support of ongoing studies that were the reason the whelks were cultured and maintained).
The use of tetracycline staining techniques to determine statolith
growth ring periodicity in the tropical loliginid squids Loliolus noctiluca and Loligo chinensis.
Further studies should include the analysis of growth and age from mark readings on statolith
sections, sampling of paralarvae and juveniles, population genetics analysis, as well as a continuous monitoring of catch samples obtained by the commercial fleet.
microstructure and maximum age of Loligo gahi (Myopsida: Loliginidae) on the Patagonian shelf.
Since changing the density of the external medium has no effect on the sedimentation of intracellular particles, these results are inconsistent with the statolith
model but predicted by, and consistent with, the gravitational pressure hypothesis for plant gravisensing.

CHEMISTRY OF APLYSIA CALIFORNICA TO WATERSHED DISCHARGE PLUMES ALONG THE OPEN COAST.
George (1995) studied the seasonal influences on statolith
growth in the tropical nearshore loliginid squid L.
