Linking stages of life history: how larval quality translates into juvenile performance for an intertidal barnacle (Balanus
Filtering barnacles [ivory barnacles, Balanus
eburneus (Crustacea; Cirripedia)] and decapod shrimps [big-claw snapping shrimp, Alpheus heterochaelis (Crustacea; Decapoda)] were used for the analysis because filter feeders and scavenging omnivores represent important links between the detritus and higher trophic levels.
Colonization of shells is absent, except for some ostreids which show borings and Balanus

) improvisus were more fragile than larger ones and that failure within the barnacle structure obscured differences in the strength of adhesion to surfaces.
Preliminary studies of secondary metabolites from seaweeds have shown biological activity against bacteria (Sieburth and Conover, 1965), Mytilus edulis larvae (Katsuoka et al., 1990), bryozoan (Bugula neritina) larvae (Schmitt et al., 1995) and Balanus
amphitrite larvae (Willemsen, 1994).
