..., 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...

... that the conical shape of limpet shells has evolved in part to reduce these hydrodynamic forces while providing a large aperture for adhesion. This study documents how lift and drag actually vary with the shape of limpet-like models and uses these data to explore the potential of hydrodynamic forces to serve...

...Mark W. Denny; Carol A. Blanchette ABSTRACT On wave-swept rocky shores, limpets are subjected to water velocities in excess of 20 m s −1 , which may impose large hydrodynamic forces. Despite the extreme severity of this flow environment, predictions from conical models suggest that limpets’ shells...

... an unusual morphology, in which the spines are much reduced, and is found on substrata fully exposed to wave-induced velocities and accelerations. Previous researchers have suggested that spine reduction may therefore be a morphological adaptation to hydrodynamic forces. However, measurement of the drag...
