I have met with striking instances of the rule in the case of varieties intermediate between well-marked varieties in the genus Balanus. And it would appear from information given me by Mr.
Such effects have been observed in the gastropods Crepidula fornicata (Pechenik et al., 1996a, b, 2002; Pechenik and Tyrell, 2015) and Crepidula onyx (Chiu et al., 2007), the bivalve Mytilus galloprovincialis (Phillips, 2002, 2004), the polychaete Polydora ligni (Qian et al., 1990), and the barnacles Balanus amphitrite (Thiyagarajan et al., 2003) and Austrominius modestus (Torres et al., 2016).
Using the [delta][.sup.15]N and [delta][.sup.13]C of big-claw snapping shrimps (Alpheus heterochaelis) and ivory barnacles (Balanus eburneus) collected between 1850 and 2004, this study sought to detect incorporation of anthropogenic nitrogen before and after major changes in population or fertilizer use.
