Table 3 Influence of the initial density of Diplosoma listerianum colonies (D), site (S) of exposure and weeks since start of the experiment (W) on total cover by fouling organisms on the effectively available tile surface area (total tile area—initial Diplosoma cover) during 8 weeks of succession

From: The colonial ascidian Diplosoma listerianum enhances the occurrence of the hydrozoan Obelia sp. during early phases of succession
