The primary goal of this research is a greater understanding of the physical, chemical and biological processes that control macro-invertebrate biofouling, particularly as it relates to A the production of larvae by adults, B the supply of larvae to substrata, and C the responses of larvae to substata. To realize this goal, we have chosen to examine the processes that control settlement of the common gregarious fouling tube worm, hydroides diainthus.
