Embryos and early straight-hinge larvae of Rangia cuneata were subjected to a temperature change of 8°C in 5 seconds, a salinity change of 4%o (5 to 1%0), and to the combination of both stresses. Embryos were relatively insensitive to the thermal shock but were killed by the salinity shock and by the combined salinity...,...temperature shock. Survival and growth of larvae were reduced by the salinity shock and by the combination of temperature and salinity shocks. The combination of the thermal shock and salinity change produced a mortality higher than the sum of the mortalities for either of the two factors alone.
