The Settlement and Growth of Balanus Improvisus, B. Eburneus and B. Amphitrite in the Miami Area
Abstract:Data for twelve years on the settlement, survival and growth of three species of barnacles in the Miami area are analyzed. Long period, seasonal and short period fluctuations are described, and the correlations of these with temperature and river discharge are discussed. In two of the species there appear to be three distinct spawning periods during the year, and it is possible that these coincide with the maturation of three successive generations since growth and maturation are very rapid.
