ABSTRACT Patterns of settlement and postsettlement mortality determine the distribution and abundance of sessile marine organisms. In mangrove forests and on rocky shores of eastern Australia, the Sydney rock oyster, Saccostrea glomerata, displays a pattern of declining abundance with increasing tidal elevation that might be related to or independent of the tidal elevation gradient in the substrate (bare, dead conspecifics, live conspecifics) available for attachment. We conducted parallel manipulative experiments on a rocky shore and in a mangrove forest to assess (1) the relative importance of tidal elevation and substrate type (bare, live oysters, or dead oysters) in determining the spatial distribution of new (<1 mm) S. glomerata recruits and (2) the contribution of settlement and postsettlement processes in setting...
