Here, Equichlamys bifrons, Mimachlamys asperrima, and Crassadoma gigantea had the highest value, followed by Amusium balloti and then Placopecten magellanicus and Pecten fumatus.
bifrons the highest value, and the other species having intermediate values.
The overall phasic contraction rate was calculated relative to the test duration of 355 sec for all species except Equichlamys bifrons.
Because the behavior of Equichlamys bifrons was assessed visually, the phasic contraction rate could be estimated relative to time to fatigue only.
