The role of encrusting coralline algae in the diets of selected intertidal herbivores
(Springer Verlag, 2006)
Kalk Bay, South Africa, has a typical south coast zonation pattern with a band of seaweed dominating the mid-eulittoral and sandwiched between two molluscan-herbivore dominated upper and lower eulittoral zones. Encrusting ...
The effects of long-term exclusion of the limpet Cymbula oculus (Born) on the distribution of intertidal organisms on a rocky shore
(NISC (Pty) Ltd and Taylor & Francis, 2009)
Zonation patterns on rocky shores are typically as a result of both physical factors and biological interactions. Physical factors generally set the upper limits of species distributions, while biological interactions ...
Effects of herbivore grazing on the physiognomy of the coralline alga Spongites yendoi and on associated competitive interactions
(National Inquiry Services Centre (NISC) and Taylor & Francis, 2008)
The territorial gardening limpet Scutellastra cochlear occurs along the south and southern west coasts of South Africa, while one of its primary food items, the encrusting coralline alga Spongites yendoi, extends much ...
Ecological significance of deep-layer sloughing in the eulittoral zone coralline alga, Spongites yendoi (Foslie) Chamberlain (Corallinaceae, Rhodophyta) in South Africa.
The crustose coralline alga Spongites yendoi (Foslie) Chamberlain (Corallinaceae, Rhodophyta) dominates the lower eulittoral zone along the South Coast of South Africa, together with the limpet Patella cochlear Born. This ...
