The fact that many small aquatic and marine organisms manage to persist in their native environments in the presence of constant advection into unfavorable habitat is known as the “drift paradox.” Although advection may determine large scale biological patterns, individual behavior such as predation or vertical/horizontal migration can dominate at smaller scales. Using both computational and analytical methods to model flow in an idealized channel, we explore the extent to which biological… CONTINUE READING
