..., suggesting that they may be better able to cope with lift than drag. This behaviour, although affecting hydrodynamic forces and enabling S. franciscanus to remain attached to the substratum in high currents, may lead to reduced capture of drift kelp, which is entrapped on upright spines and then eaten...

...Hannah Louise Stewart SUMMARY An upright posture in the water column may expose benthic marine organisms to faster flow higher in the water column than near the substratum,potentially increasing rates of mass exchange while also exposing the organisms to higher hydrodynamic forces. Benthic...

...Mark Denny; Brian Gaylord SUMMARY Wave-swept marine algae must contend with the hydrodynamic forces imposed by extreme water velocities. Nonetheless, they seldom have a shape that appears streamlined and they are constructed of weak, compliant materials. How do they survive? The answer is complex...
