Estimates of planktonic larval mortality using the marine gastropods Crepidula fornicata and C. plana.Pechenik, Jan A.
Levine, Stephen H.
Estimates of planktonic larval mortality rates have varied widely over the past 50 yr, from about 0% d-1 to 80% min-1. Convincing estimates from field sampling programs have proved difficult to obtain. This study considered the impact of predation pressure on larval growth rates for 2 species of the gastropod genus Crepidula whose larvae grow linearly over time. We reasoned that slow-growing larva... read more
