Rare events and population structure of the barnacle semibalanus cariosus

, : Rare events and population structure of the barnacle semibalanus cariosus. Journal of Experimental Marine Biology & Ecology 87(1): 55-66

Populations of the large interidal barnacle S. cariosus (Pallas, 1788) in the San Juan Islands, Washington [USA] were dominated by small (2-9 mm diameter) individuals, but there was often a distinct peak of large barnacles (.gtoreq. 20 mm) in the population size-frequency distribution for a particular site. During the winter of 1968-1969, a massive death of predatory snails (Thais spp.) occurred. After that event, an extraordinarily large fraction of the S. cariosus population survived and grew to large sizes. The survivors of that event may have produced the distinct peak of large barnacles present in 1973-1977 and that as much as half of the 1982 population of S. cariosus .gtoreq. 20 mm diameter may still be survivors of that cohort.
