However, emergence was not synchronized (Figure 2), in others words, the emergence was distributed desuniform along the time what resulted in polymodal distribution
. In this way a polymodal distribution
of the relative frequencies regarding to seedling emergence was observed in all substrates (Figure 2), which indicates that the studied species does not present uniform emergence.
10, which tends to give a polymodal distribution
curve, with also modes above 5 [micro]m, in agreement with a more complex morphological structure.
In females, total length ranged from 4.5 to 13.3 mm, presenting a polymodal distribution
, with peaks in the classes of 5.0, 6.0 and 8.5 mm and with a mean length of 7.9 [+ or -] 0.1 mm (Figure 6(b)).
Subsurface samples were found to be bimodal (B > 1.7) prior to typhoons and polymodal distributions
are observed after typhoons.
Mussels from R1 and R2 also showed polymodal distributions
and mussels were present over a wider range of sizes than at the other sites.
