Coastal upwelling is an ocean feature thought to have important impacts on benthic marine communities by enhancing planktonic productivity in the nearshore environment. In this study, growth rates of 3 species of filter-feeders were examined over a geographic region that includes sites where upwelling is typically weak (south of Point Conception, California, USA) and sites where upwelling is often strong and frequent (at and to the north of Point Conception). The growth of the mussel Mytilus… Expand
