As articulated in my book, planetary materials were egested
(not ejected) from a star in sequential epochs.
11 in all instances, confirming that egested structures of these condition categories were significantly smaller than the size at which they were ingested (Table 2).
As seen when errors were partitioned for pollock, errors owing to resampling of egested structures were the major source of error (>83% across structures) within the overall total for Atka mackerel.
Filtration rate for total organics (FRTOTORG; in milligrams per hour) = [((Milligrams inorganic matter egested both as true feces and pseudofeces per hour) / (PIM / TPM)) x (POM / TPM)]
Filtration rate for SELORG (FRSELORG; in milligrams per hour) = [((Milligrams inorganic matter egested both as true feces and pseudofeces per hour) / (PIM / TPM)) x (SELORG / TPM)]
The difference in organic load between a mussel-salmon IMTA site and a salmon farm is the same as the difference between the salmon farm organics absorbed and the seston organics egested (Fig.
This supports the assumption that fish culture solids are already present at the site and indigestible portions offish culture solids consumed are simply egested as mussel feces.
They determined that, although biodeposits from a single size class can be assigned to the individual mussel that egested
it, the variations in biodeposit morphology from a single mussel are greater than the variations between mussels.
The ratio of viola: chl a was significantly lower in the feces and pseudofeces than in the algal diet, indicating that high numbers of whole cells were not being excreted or egested
in the feces during the 72 h pulse-chase feeding period.
where I is the energy value of the food ingested, E is the energy egested
in feces, Ab is the total food ingested minus the total feces egested
, Pg is the energy allocated to production of somatic growth, [P.
When fecal strands were recovered, they likewise contained an undifferentiated mixture of beads and egested
