Laboratory flume ex periments we re conducted in order to test the influence on sediment e rodibility of varying densities of the tube-building polychaete worm Owenia fusiformis. Experiments were performed on isolated individuals, in order to measure approximate spatial limits of isolated tube effects, and on arrays of individuals at densities reported previously to be associated with stable beds....
