Experimental study on the performance of the common starfish Asterias rubens subjected to heatwaves of different duration and amplitude (No, Present-day, Extended, Amplified and Amplified & Extended heatwave) followed by a hypoxic upwelling. The study was conducted at GEOMAR, Helmholtz-Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (54.329979 N, 10.148013 E) in the Indoor Benthocosms (Pansch and Hiebenthal 2019) over 63 days from July 10th until September 10th, 2018. The implemented treatments are based on a climatological analysis of a 15-year long data set (Pansch et al. 2018).
Starfish activity was measured as righting response (i.e., time needed for the starfish to turn back onto their oral side after being placed on their aboral side) before the beginning of the heatwave treatments, at the end of the heatwaves, before, during and at the end of the upwelling event, and at the end of the experiment.
