Title: Toxicity of Dialyzed Extracts of Some California Anemones (Coelenterata) 
Author: Martin, Edgar J.

Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: Martin EJ. 1963. Toxicity of dialyzed extracts of some California anemones (Coelenterata). Pac Sci 17(3): 302-304.
Abstract: Anemones of the California coast, collected from November 1960
to March 1961, were compared with respect to their toxicity. Aqueous extracts
of the anemones were dialyzed and assayed by intraperitoneal injection to mice,
and the survival times of the injected mice were compared.
The extracts of Anthopleura elegantissima and A. xanthogrammica were by far
more toxic than those of Metridium senile, Corynactis californica, Tealia crassicornis,
T. lofotensis, and T. coriacea.
The differences in potencies of the extra cts may indicate species variations m
(1) toxicity, (2) efficiency of the extraction method, or (3) both.
