Physical and biological factors influencing mussel (Mytilus trossulus, M. edulis) settlement on a wave-exposed rocky shore
Settlement rates of mussels Mytilus trossulus and M. edulis on artificial collectors (aquarium filter wool) and natural substrata were measured in tidepools and on emergent rock in recently ice-scoured and non-scoured ...
Structure and dynamics of mussel patches in tidepools on a rocky shore in Nova Scotia, Canada
The distribution, size structure, and dynamics of mussel (Mytilus trossulus, M. edulis) patches in tidepools were studied on an exposed rocky shore near Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The mussel patches were dynamic, ...
Role of early post-settlement mortality in recruitment of benthic marine invertebrates
Newly settled invertebrates usually are subject to high rates of mortality (Type III survivorship). Therefore, knowledge of early post-settlement events is critical in determining if and when patterns of abundance and ...
