Long-Term Changes in Shallow-Water Fouling Communities of the White Sea

Abstract

The replacement of an ascidian (Styela rustica L.) fouling community by a blue mussel (Mytilus edulis L.) community was described for the White Sea. The alternation of populations of these two species takes place in fouling communities developing in the upper 3- to 5-m layer of water. The life span of each type of fouling probably depends on interannual… (More)
