Abstract

Measurement of water pumping rates of burrowing animals is of crucial importance for the study of many processes both within and above the sea floor. This short review deals with water pumping and analysis of flow, including available techniques and bio-fluid mechanical theory, in burrowing deposit- and filter-feeding zoobenthos. A number of examples serve to illustrate general principles.
