Total organic content (TOC = shell free dry mass (SFDM) + OSC, black) and organic shell component (OSC = shell matrix proteins and carbohydrates + periostracum, white) of settled M. edulis as a function of shell length. TOC = 0.018 (±0.003) * shell length (mm)2.705 (±0.125), F(1,84) = 959.4, P < 0.01; OSC = 0.009 (±0.002) * shell length (mm)2.735 (±0.127), F(1,82) = 987.2, P < 0.01; Values represent means ± SE.

Calculations were performed by converting the masses shown in Fig. 1d into energy equivalents using values of 2 J mg−1 for CaCO3 and 23 J mg−1 for organic mass (Brey et al. 1988, Palmer 1992). n = 7. Bars represent means ± SD.

gcb12109-sup-0005-FigureS5.tifimage/tif6411KFigure S5. Comparison of M. edulis acid–base status of haemolymph sampled (I) immediately after removal of the animal from the fjord or (II) after 5–10 min storage of specimens in ambient seawater (a–c), Change of measured pH with time after an initial stable value has been reached about 30 s after beginning of the measurement, no significant effect of CO2 out gassing on pH is observed during the first 3 min (d). Davenport diagram of M. edulis haemolymph acid–base status. Specimens were kept for 7 days at two pCO2 levels (a+b: 380 μatm; c+d: 4000 μatm) and two flow rates (a+c: 100 ml min−1; b+d: 0 ml min−1), means ± SD, n = 5. Specimens at 4000 μatm and 0 ml min−1 (d) had significant higher HCO3 levels than the other groups (ANOVA, F(3,16) = 11.4, P < 0.01) (e).
