Abstract: Three species of the intertidal limpet genus Cellana are distributed
along the east coast of Australia in a latitudinal sequence. Collections of
limpets were made at eight localities spanning 27 degrees of latitude. Shell length
measurements were analyzed to establish growth constants and these constants
were related to environmental temperatures. The most southerly population
showed a marked reduction in growth rate . Growth rates at the tropical and
warm temperate locations form a sequence in which the growth constants
(relative to temperature) of the tropical species change more markedly than do
those of the temperate species.
