Global patterns of macroinvertebrate production in marine benthic habitats
Using data published in 15 major marine ecology journals (from 1970 to 1999), we examined global patterns of marine benthic macroinvertebrate production and its distribution among feeding guilds andExpand

Scales of coastal heterogeneity and benthic intertidal species richness, diversity and abundance
Species richness, diversity, total biomass of the benthic macrofauna and macroflora and the biomass of the 2 dominant taxa (Fucus spp and Myt~ lus eduhs) were examined in relation to coastalExpand

Community development following removal of urchins, Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis, from the rocky subtidal zone of the St. Lawrence Estuary, Eastern Canada
SummaryThe role of sea urchins, Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis, in structuring the rocky subtidal community was examined at Anse aux Basques on the north shore of the St. Lawrence Estuary, Québec.Expand

Genetic evidence for kin aggregation in the intertidal acorn barnacle (Semibalanus balanoides)
It is generally assumed that larvae of benthic species are thoroughly mixed in the plankton and distributed randomly at settlement. Yet, it has also been hypothesized that a combination of larvalExpand

Resuspension in the shallow sublittoral zone of a macrotidal estuarine environment: Wind influence1
Several biological and physical variables were measured four times daily for 148 consecutive days at a fixed station to examine fluctuations of phytoplankton abundance in the littoral zone of theExpand

Influence of substratum heterogeneity and settled barnacle density on the settlement of cypris larvae
On the Atlantic coast of Canada, Semibalanus balanoides (L.) is widely distributed in the mid-intertidal zone, whereas in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, this species is mostly limited to crevices. WeExpand

Barnacle settlement:field experiments on the influence of larval supply, tidal level, biofilm quality and age on Balanus amphitrite cyprids
A set of 3 field experiments lasting 24 h was conducted during April 1998 at the Duke University Marine Laboratory (Beaufort, North Carolina, USA) to: (1) assess the influence of larval supply,Expand

The Effect of Light on the Vertical Structure of Epibenthic Diatom Communities
The development of an epibenthic diatom Community was observed using light and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) on samples obtained from plastic panels immersed vertically at two depths in the St.Expand

Substratum heterogeneity and complexity influence micro-habitat selection of Balanus sp. and Tubularia crocea larvae
This exper~mental study examines the importance of active and passive processes during the settlement of the barnacle Balanus sp. and the hydrozoan Tubulana crocea larvae. Three hypotheses wereExpand
