The bioprotective properties of the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) on intertidal rocky shore platforms

Abstract:

Biogeomorphological processes are an important component in the geomorphic evolution of rocky coasts. Sessile organisms, including those which form dense biological covers, enhance and/or retard weathering and erosion. The common blue mussel (Mytilus edulis) is found on rocky shores in many parts of the world, typically forming extensive beds several centimetres thick. Yet, unlike other canopy forming marine organisms (e.g., seaweeds), the influences of mussels on processes of rock breakdown ...
