Definition

  • according to Hottinger (2006):

ENCRUSTING GROWTH - the mode of growth of permanently attached shells covering large surfaces by keeping low and close to it, accelerating the occupation of a surface by forming annular expanse chambers (as in certain species of Gypsina), in competition with rhodophyceans for instance.
