AbstractFour methods were used in dating micro-growth bands in the intertidal gastropods Littorina littorea, Patella vulgata and Nucella lapillus. The most reliable method for dating the bands without appreciably interrupting subsequent shell deposition was to remove mechanically a thin layer from the outer lip of the shell or to keep the animals in sea water with ample food for 36 h to produce an abnormally wide shell increment. The number of bands from the check band to the growing edge were counted in peels of sectioned and etched shells, and agreed within 1% with the number of low waters that the animals had experienced. -from Authors
