Abstract

Marphysa gravely; Southern is a common polychaete which occurs in the muddy substratum of the brackish-water regions of Madras, where salinities fluctuate over a wide range (Panikkar and Aiyar, 1937). In the laboratory under experimental conditions the worm is able to tolerate dilutions of sea-water ranging from 20-70% without any ill effects
