Limpets were excluded from barnacle-dominated areas in 2 semi-exposed localities on the shore of northern Spain. We tested the hypotheses that a macroalgal canopy would develop and barnacle cover would decrease in exclusion quadrats. Spatial replication considered localities and sites within localities, while temporal replication considered 2 seasons of removal and 2 start dates within each locality and season. The experimental methods included exclusion quadrats (using fences), procedural… CONTINUE READING
