...Katharine J. Mach; Drew V. Nelson; Mark W. Denny SUMMARY Biomechanical analyses of intertidal and shallow subtidal seaweeds have elucidated ways in which these organisms avoid breakage in the presence of exceptional hydrodynamic forces imposed by pounding surf. However, comparison of algal material...

... macroalgae seaweed fatigue breakage As sessile organisms, intertidal macroalgae experience the full brunt of wave-induced water velocities, which in breaking waves commonly exceed 10 m s -1 . Hydrodynamic forces thereby imposed on seaweeds( Gaylord, 2000 ; Denny and Gaylord, 2002 ) are repeated...
