Influence of sewage pollution on a rocky intertidal community dominated by the mytilid Brachidontes rodriguezi
The characteristic Brachidontes rodriguezi community was absent from the highly polluted intertidal area surrounding a sewage outfall at Quequen (Argentina). It began to recover in lower tidal levelsExpand
Overgrowth competition in an assemblage of encrusting bryozoans settled on artificial substrata
TLDR
Patterns of intraand interspecific competition on artificial substrata were studled in Patagonia, in an epifaunal community composed of 19 species of bryozoans, 4 spirorbid polychaetes and 1 colonial tunicate, finding Colony size was found to be an important factor influencing the outcome only in encounters between species with similar competitive abilities.

Growth of the pulmonate limpet Siphonaria lessoni (Blainville) in a rocky intertidal area affected by sewage pollution
TLDR
Growth of Siphonaria lessoni (Blainville) was studied at two rocky intertidal sites near Quequen, Argentina and a positive correlation between growth and mortality rates was observed. Expand
Intertidal and Subtidal Fouling Assemblages in a Patagonian Harbour (Argentina, Southwest Atlantic)
TLDR
The composition of the early stages of intertidal and subtidal fouling assemblages in Comodoro Rivadavia harbour and the influence of shore level and season on their structure were analysed. Expand
Observations on activity pattern and resting site fidelity in the pulmonate limpet Siphonaria lessoni
TLDR
Foraging movements of S. Lessoni in Carballido occurred exclusively during ebbing tides, both by day and night, and the importance of desiccation stress and dislodgement by wave action as factor determining the activity pattern is discussed. Expand
