Title: Growth and Size Distribution of the Brachiopod Terebratalia transversa Sowerby

Abstract: Relatively synchronized samplings of man-made structures of known
but varying ages have been used to generate a growth curve for Terebratalia. Modes
indicative of the first four or five year classes were recognized, and seem internally
consistent with each other. Older year classes were indistinguishable. In the vicinity
of Seattle, Washington, this species probably does not survive more than nine to ten
years. Growth lines, though conspicuous shell features, are not related to age.
