Thinning exponents for two intertidal mussel populations (Mytilus edulis) from Oostende and Vianen are estimated. Both statistically and biologically acceptable relationship log Median DW - log N is proposed for self-thinning analysis. Differential growth patterns in younger and older age-classes of studied Mytilus populations are investigated. Asymmetric competition followed by natural mortality is observed.
