  • Over the last two decades, many studies on functional morphology have suggested that material properties of seaweed tissues may influence their fitness. Because hydrodynamic forces are likely the largest source of mortality for seaweeds in high wave energy environments, tissues with material properties that behave favorably in these environments are likely to be selected for. However, it is very difficult to disentangle the effects of materials properties on seaweed performance because size… CONTINUE READING
