Do barnacles affect the mussels they grow on?

Barnacles and mussels have an intimate relationship, but are they welcome house guests or uninvited squatters?

Read the article then tell us what you think...

A fascinating and witty article from which I learnt a lot. and i was reminded once again how often a research topic proves to be more involved than at first expected. in this case, the impact of invasive mussels on the research topic! well done for an excellent and interesting read. Pearls of wisdom!

oh yes, in a simple way we're all related genetically. And to be honest, we all know it too, just look at our 'pets'. But we sure know how to hide it, don't we :) Buchenwald was only humans, but a modern farm?
