Spatial and temporal variability of patterns of colonization by mussels (Mytilus trossulus, M-edulis) on a wave-exposed rocky shore
Colonization rates of mussels (Mytilus trossulus and M. edulis) were measured on natural substrata in tidepools and on emergent rock in recently ice-scoured and non-scoured regions of a rocky shore near Halifax, Nova ...
Predicting wave dislodgment of mussels: variation in attachment strength with body size, habitat, and season
Breaking waves impose large hydrodynamic forces which may dislodge mussels and other organisms living on exposed rocky shores. We examined the effect of variation in attachment strength with size, habitat and season on ...
