Dear listers,

I am investigating the effect of flow regime (mainly type of flow; i.e., laminar
vrs. turbulent) on the settlement of marine larvae.
I am familiar with work done on the effect of current speed on settlement
preferences of various fouling organisms, but I have not seen any work done on
the influence of flow regime on early attachment and settlement processes.
I'd greatly appreciate any references dealing with this aspect, or on the
interaction between flow regime, algal growth and larval settlement.
