... to predation for an ectothermic intertidal mollusc (the owl limpet, Lottia gigantea ) and its predator (the black oystercatcher, Haematopus bachmani ). The ability of L. gigantea to resist bird predation during low tide is determined by the tenacity of attachment to the rock. We developed a transducer...

...Gretchen M. Moeser; Emily Carrington SUMMARY The blue mussel , Mytilus edulis , attaches itself to the substrate by producing a radially arranged complex of collagenous byssal threads. The strength of byssal attachment, or tenacity, has been shown to vary seasonally on Rhode Island shores...

... area of contact between the disc and the surface. Tenacity (force per unit area) increases with roughness [e.g. 0.18 and 0.34 MPa on smooth polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA), 0.21 and 0.47 MPa on rough PMMA for sea stars and sea urchins, respectively] if only the projected surface area of the adhesive...

... differing greatly in tenacity values (range, 1.39-28.24 kPa). The surface is readily wettable with water (contact angle, 31.9-36.0°C)and has a high surface free energy (56.84-61.93 mN m -1 ) with a relatively high polar component (33.09-52.70 mN m -1 ). To examine the effect of the glandular secretion...
