Abstract
    Investigation was made into the tolerance to lowered chlorinities (4% and 7%) of embryos of M. marinus and O. gammarella.The rate of development remained constant, but the number of hatched juveniles declined with chlorinity.The egg membrane of both species provides only slight protection against dilution of the medium, since isotonicity of the extra-embryonic fluid with the medium is reached fairly rapidly.The brood production of a population of M. marinus living in 4% Cl' is considerably reduced.
