  • The mussel Sernirnytilus algosus (Gould) often dominates the space on exposed rocky shores of subtropical South America. Dynamics of space occupancy was investigated in a rocky intertidal habitat in central Peru. A series of colonization expenrnents and quantitative sampling of musselassociated faunas were conducted to clarify interspec~f~c relationships anlong resident organisms. Spatial gaps created within the S. algosus zone were colonised successively by the barnacles Jehlius cirratus… CONTINUE READING
