Density and shell-size variation of Nodilittorina lineolata (Orbigny, 1840) in the intertidal region in southeastern Brazil


Nodilittorina lineolata is a small littorinid characteristic of the supralittoral of rocky shores but extends its vertical range to the lower midlittoral. Shell-size and density of Nodilittorina were measured at two different levels, the supralittoral and barnacle zones, in six sites along the south-eastern Brazilian coast. The sites studied varied in the… (More)
