A method for determining the surface areas of stones to enable quantitative density estimates of littoral stonedwelling organisms to be made


1. Surface areas of irregularly shaped stones were determined by coating the stones with a rubber latex solution, removing the mould and calculating the weight of an even film of water which covered the surface of the mould which mirrored the stone surface. 2. Similar work on standard bodies of known surface area revealed that .0020 (± .00012) g of water… (More)
