Abstract
    Pieces of red meranti wood (Shorea leprosula) were soaked in horizontal and vertical positions in sea water for 9 weeks. Two species of bivalves settled on the wood: Bankia campanellata and Martesia striata. Average densities of settling larvae were 125 ind. 100 cm super(-2) on horizontal wood, and 95 ind. 100 cm super(-2) on vertical wood, indicating a tendency to settle on the top side of the wood. The number of larvae settling on wood immersed at the surface was not significantly different from wood at 1.25 m depth.
