Table 1 Effects of the tidal cycle (12 h, 13 samples including 0 h) and season (summer, autumn, winter and spring) on the environmental variability of the water column in the estuary of the river Quempillén (Ancud, Chile)

From: The influence of season and the tidal cycle on division of labour by the radula during feeding in the estuarine brooding gastropod Crepipatella dilatata (Calyptraeidae)
