Summary1.Tufnol panels were immersed below low water for 1, 2 and 3 months periods, over 2.5 years at Greenock, Mallaig, Thurso, and Newcastle, and over 1.5 years at Rosyth. The numbers of all species settling on the panels were recorded. Settlement (=fouling) was heaviest at Mallaig, followed by Greenock, Newcastle and Rosyth, and was light at Thurso.2.The number of organisms and species increased with increased time of immersion. Settlement was low from December to March. It peaked at… 
Fouling in Lake Timsah (Egypt)
TLDR
The uppermost two metres were the most populated part of the lake and fouling nearly vanished below 5 m depth largely due to the high salinity and turbidity.

1. This study was primarily undertaken to investigate the competitive relationship between Balanus amphitrite amphitrite Darwin and Pomatoleios kraussii (Baird) in Kuwait, Arabian Gulf. A part of the
Benthic assemblage development and larval ecology of marine invertebrates at Adelaide Island, Antarctica
TLDR
The timing of settlement appears to be the characteristic of the life cycle that is most strongly selected for and differences between sessile and mobile taxa in the timing of settlements may be caused by the seasonal availability of food types for juvenile stages.
Seasonality of recruitment in Antarctic sessile marine benthos
TLDR
It is suggested that the apparent trend for winter recruitment may be an adaptive response to an environment in which disturbance peaks during summer, and seasonal reductions in the relative number of recruits on upper surfaces suggest that post-settlement mortality may be important.
Recruitment patterns of serpulids (Annelida: Polychaeta) in Bantry Bay, Ireland
TLDR
Examination of the spatial patterns of distribution of the serpulid tube worms indicated that the recruits were aggregated within panels, and the degree of aggregation was correlated with the overall density of recruitment per panel.
Laboratory studies on larval growth ofPolydora ligni, Polydora ciliata, andPygospio elegans (Polychaeta, Spionidae)
TLDR
Rates of development and growth show a high degree of variability in all three species, not only caused by variation in environmental factors such as temperature or food, but also among and within single hatches of larvae reared under identical conditions.

STUDIES IN SUBLITTORAL ECOLOGY III. LAMINARIA FOREST ON THE WEST COAST OF SCOTLAND; A STUDY OF ZONATION IN RELATION TO WAVE ACTION AND ILLUMINATION
TLDR
On the shores of Carsaig Island, Scotland, the sublittoral region is densely forested with laminarian seaweeds down to a depth of at least 15 meters, and probably down to much greater depth; but within the forest the illumination changes much less over a considerable range of depth.
