Larvae of several species of invertebrates that live just below the surface of the seabed (infaunal species) are known to make active and consistent choices among sedimentary habitats; generally they choose the sediments most similar to those occurring in the habitats where the adult stages live in the field1–5. But, previous experiments designed to investigate habitat selection by such larvae were con-ducted almost entirely in still water and never under realistic flow conditions.
