AbstractHeart rate of the tropical limpet Cellana grata was monitored on the shore (Cape d'Aguilar, Hong Kong) and in the laboratory using a non-invasive technique. Individual field measurements performed on inactive limpets, in a variety of thermal conditions during a diurnal low tide, showed a general increase in heart rate with increasing body temperature. This relationship was not always evident when monitoring individual responses over a diurnal low tide period, since under some circumstances, heart rate of individuals decreased with increasing the temperature of the substrate and foot. A factorial laboratory experiment showed that heart rate was faster at higher temperatures but slower in larger animals. The combined evaluation of field and laboratory data suggests that limpets in some habitats may be able to regulate their metabolic rate when resting on hot rock substrates.
