Two co-occurring chthamalid barnacle species occur on the rocky shores of continental Portugal: Chthamalus stellatus (Poli) and Chthamalus montaguiSouthward. In the present study, patterns of distribution and abundance (density and percentage cover), both vertically (tidal level) and horizontally (wave action), were studied for each species on headlands (more wave action) and not on headlands (less wave action) and at two spatial scales (shore and site) and three tidal levels (low, mid and… CONTINUE READING
