Abstract

Examines assemblages of sessile animals occupying shaded, commonly vertical hard substrata in the shallow subtidal zone, proposing a conceptual model which focuses on variation in characteristics such as birth and death rates, competitive interactions and dispersal. This model may explain the coexistence of a large number of ecologically similar species in assemblages that appear in a sense "stable' (but where assemblages at different sites differ in detail). -from Authors
