The biomarker composition showed that there were no indications of hypersalinity (e.
Since, throughout the study in Ojo de Agua Uriburu no predators were recorded and food availability (represented by phytoplankton chlorophyll-a) was always relatively high, the idea of a modulatory effect of salinity on the zooplankton community could be supported by the fact that richness was high while the lake remained in the mesosaline interval but declined once the lake surpassed the threshold of hypersalinity.
This dramatic paleoceanographic event resulted in the establishment of harsh conditions (eutrophication, hypersalinity and anoxia) at the scale of a whole marine basin, which was lethal for most eukaryotes but allowed some extremophile prokaryotes to flourish.
This event highlights the need to further understand trophic relationships, movement patterns, and the impacts of hypersalinity on Baffin Bay residence.
As a result, the St Lucia Estuary experiences regional hypersalinity at times, especially in the northern part of the lake where salinities occasionally exceed 200 ppt (Whitfield & Taylor 2009; Cyrus et al.
Hypersalinity (salinity, 55) had a detrimental effect on performance outcomes; however, performance outcomes at salinities of 15 and 35 were comparable.

In nature their encysted embryos (cysts), the focus of this paper, encounter severe hypersalinity and air desiccation; high doses of ultraviolet radiation; varying degrees of hypoxia, including anoxia; and extremes of temperature (Clegg and Conte, 1980; Browne et al.
For example, low salinities (as discussed above) could be detrimental to egg viability; whereas, alleviating hypersaline areas could expand the spawning area, particularly in the central zone where hypersalinity conditions are persistent (Orlando et al.
