Data for Aequipecten irradians (Aeq. ir.) and Placopecten magellanicus (Pl. mag) are from Kahler et al.(Kahler et al., 1976). The values for A. colbecki (A. col.) and Pecten maximus(Pec. max.) are the mean among the three samples. For comparison, the mean among the three temperate and tropical species is given.
