..., 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...

... do not work. Mechanisms that incorporate the allometry of drag and strength accurately predict the maximal size of intertidal algae but not of animals, and internally imposed inertial forces may explain the limits to size in large kelps. The general question of size in wave-swept organisms remains...

... can be reduced; hence, partial breakage can prevent total destruction. An example of the latter is provided by the wave-swept kelp Egregia laevigata , which break at regions damaged by limpet grazing. Kelp ‘pruned’ in this way are less likely to wash away during storms than are those not subjected...

...Barbara D. Utter; Mark W. Denny ABSTRACT We propose a hydro-mechanical numerical model that predicts the maximal tension to which stipes of the giant kelp Macrocystis pyrifera will be subjected when exposed to ocean waves. Predicted maximal tensions are close to those measured in the field...
