How much effect does nutritional state have on the recovery time of Nucella ostrina from low tide stresses? We predicted that fed N. ostrina would recover faster from low tide stress than starved ones. Fed and starved snails were exposed to a simulated low tide situation for 1 hour, and then measured for recovery based on their respiration rates and behavior. There were no significant differences in relative respiration rates of recovery between fed and starved snails.
