... habitats. Here we describe the mechanics of genicula in the articulated coralline Calliarthron and demonstrate how segmentation affects bending performance and amplifies bending stresses within genicula. A numerical model successfully predicted deflections of articulated fronds by assuming genicula...

... coralline alga Calliarthron , which thrives in wave-exposed intertidal habitats. Its ability to survive depends critically upon its segmented morphology (calcified segments separated by flexible joints or `genicula'), which allows otherwise rigid fronds to bend and thereby reduce drag. However, bending also...

... along articulated fronds. Here, I describe the allometric scaling of geniculum size, breaking force and tissue strength along articulated fronds in two species of Calliarthron . Genicular material is much stronger than tissue from fleshy macroalgae. Moreover, as fronds grow, genicula get bigger...
