... affect how a larva interacts with anisotropic fluid motions, including those in feeding currents and in boundary layers encountered during settlement. Oyster larvae ( Crassostrea virginica ) were exposed to simple shear in a Couette device and to solid-body rotation in a single rotating cylinder. Both...

... embryos of diverse invertebrates may therefore permit vertical migration in nature. I used turbulent and laminar shear flows to investigate: (1) the speed and direction of transport of non-motile and newly swimming stages of the echinoids Dendraster excentricus and Strongylocentrotus purpuratus...

...Jeffrey A. Riffell; Richard K. Zimmer SUMMARY Fertilization is a complex interaction among biological traits of gametes and physical properties of the fluid environment. At the scale of fertilization (0.01–1 mm), sperm encounter eggs while being transported within a laminar (or viscous) shear flow...

...Michael I. Latz; Andrew R. Juhl; Abdel M. Ahmed; Said E. Elghobashi; Jim Rohr SUMMARY Dinoflagellate bioluminescence provides a near-instantaneous reporter of cell response to flow. Although both fluid shear stress and acceleration are thought to be stimulatory, previous studies have used flow...
