|Abstract:||A knowledge of the lifespan of an organism
is of value in understanding its life history.
Ecological succession, including rates and characteristics
of marine fouling, may be related to
organism longevity. Organic production can be
evaluated from growth and longevity data (e.g.,
Thorson, 1957). Our longevity analysis was
undertaken as part of an evaluation of rates of
biogenic sediment production by calcareous
