- ... In shallow marine environments, wave-induced disturbance can have a major influence on species abundance and distribution patterns. Understanding how waves affect habitat engineers, such as macroalgae, is therefore important for understanding subtidal community dynamics. In this study a wave model (SWAN) was used to identify the spatial distribution of wave forces across the Wellington south coast ...
