Description
  • 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
