1. 1. The purple shore crab, Hemigrapsus nudus, was exposed to environmental temperatures 10 and 20°C, and the time course of changes in hemolymph proteins and clotting time was recorded. 2. 2. Results indicate that this animal exhibits responses to abrupt changes in environmental temperature characteristic of acclimation. Initial shifts of total hemocyanin concentrations of up to 54 per cent of initial value were followed by a return to within 2 per cent. 3. 3. Total hemolymph protein and hemolymph clotting time exhibited similar responses, with a correlation between these two variables of -095313814. © 1973.
