Morphometrics – Olympia Oyster OA Larvae

Olympia oyster larvae were measured using NIS Elements-BR (Nikon) imaging software to measure larvae length (hinge to growing edge) and width (10x objective and 10x nosepiece setting on software). Below is a screenshot of what the software, larvae, and measurement controls look like:

Measured 30 individuals from each tube.

The following samples were measured (these are the tube labels; currently not certain what shorthand labelling scheme should be used):
