... to predation for an ectothermic intertidal mollusc (the owl limpet, Lottia gigantea ) and its predator (the black oystercatcher, Haematopus bachmani ). The ability of L. gigantea to resist bird predation during low tide is determined by the tenacity of attachment to the rock. We developed a transducer...

.... 7. Experiments performed on Lottia gigantea in a bell jar to determine the effect of ambient pressure on attachment force. Attachment force per unit area measured by the Precision transducer is plotted against the ambient pressure in the chamber. The solid line is a linear regression of the data...
