A particular interaction-diffusion mussel-algae model system for the development of spontaneous stationary young mussel bed patterning on a homogeneous substrate covered by a quiescent marine layer containing algae as a food source is investigated employing weakly nonlinear diffusive instability analyses. The main results of these analyses can be represented by plots in the ratio of mussel motility to algae lateral diffusion versus the algae reservoir concentration dimensionless parameter space… CONTINUE READING
